Japanese Masterworks: Paintings from the Indianapolis Museum of Art (English and Japanese Edition)

Item #45561
ISBN: 0936260815

Japanese Masterworks offers a survey of Japanese painting spanning 600 years (the 1300s to early 1900s) and including almost all of the major genres and styles. Especially important are paintings -- hanging scrolls and folding screens -- by many of the best-known artists of the Edo period (1615-1868).

The paintings are illustrated in color, and a detailed entry accompanies each painting. The book also includes artist biographies and four essays on the history of Japanese painting. A short essay on Japanese painting collections in the American Midwest and an essay on the history of the Asian art collection at the Indianapolis Museum of Art complete the volume.
