Abstract:

"Smile of the Buddha explores the influences of Asian worldviews and particularly Buddhism on the art of Europe and America during the modern era. In her informative introduction and essays on twenty well-known artists, Jacquelynn Baas analyzes how the teachings of the Buddha offered alternatives to Western intellectual conceptions of art and traces the various ways this inspiration materialized in artworks. The influence of Buddhism on art from the last quarter of the nineteenth century to the present has been greater than historians and critics generally recognize, Baas claims. In considering essential questions about the relationship of art and life, her timely and illustrated book expands our perspective on how spirituality and creativity inspire and inform one another. Baas's insights and the images she presents give the reader a new understanding and appreciation of a diverse array of Western artworks."--Jacket.
