Asian art in the Art Institute of Chicago by Elinor L Pearlstein ( Book )
5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A clay armored-guardian figure reveals the luxury of the tombs of Tang-dynasty aristocrats; a host of devotional images convey a range of religious expression, from the divine compassion and worldly elegance of Chinese Buddhist sculptures to the stern intensity in the painted visages of Japanese Zen patriarchs; and woodblock prints by revered Japanese masters provide glimpses into the tea houses and theaters of the Yoshiwara - the pleasure district of old Edo - celebrating its most popular actors and esteemed beauties. In elucidating the contexts and aesthetic qualities of these works, the authors relate recent discoveries, retell ancient stories, and help us to see objects of enduring beauty from fresh perspectives
Reflections of reality in Japanese art by Sherman E Lee ( Book )
7 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Art of Japan : masterpieces from the Cleveland Museum of Art by Cleveland Museum of Art ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The first Japanese objects entered Cleveland's collection a few decades after the country had been opened to the West, when much of Japan looked as it had for centuries, and as it does in the images reproduced in this book. Today Japan is one of the world's most advanced countries, and crowds and skyscrapers may seem to have replaced the temples and gardens, but Japanese culture retains the power to refresh and challenge the aesthetics of the West, as it has since the sixteenth century." "Throughout their history the Japanese have avidly appropriated the arts of other countries - the ceramics and bronze casting of Korea, the painting and sculpture of China - and made them their own. But the poetry of natural materials, the earthy humor of some of the most spiritual imagery, the dynamic use of "empty" space, and, above all, the constant theme of the relationship of nature and humankind are unique to Japan."--BOOK JACKET
