Most widely held works by Chiura Obata
Through Japan with brush & ink by Chiura Obata( Book )

7 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using the traditional brush-and-ink technique, Chiura Obata skillfully presents the varied aspects of Japan: a mountain landscape enveloped in mist, an intimate Japanese garden, the hustle of the busy city of Tokyo, the fleeting cherry blossoms, an ancient temple compound, a festive group of holiday sightseers. The artist captures with his deft sketches the special quality of Japan that attracts the visitor and resident alike. This is far more than a picture of Japan; it is rather a perceptive interpretation by one who knows and loves the country

The national parks. America's best idea( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To battle unemployment during the Great Depression, Franklin D. Roosevelt creates the Civilian Conservation Corps, which spawns a "golden age" for the parks through major renovation projects. In a groundbreaking study, a young NPS biologist named George Melendez Wright discovers widespread abuses of animal habitats and pushes the service to reform its wildlife policies. Congress narrowly passes a bill to protect the Everglades in Florida as a national park -- the first time a park has been created solely to preserve an ecosystem, as opposed to scenic beauty. As America becomes entrenched in World War II, Roosevelt is pressured to open the parks to mining, grazing and lumbering. The president is also subjected to a storm of criticism for expanding Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming by accepting a gift of land secretly purchased by John D. Rockefeller, Jr

Chiura Obata : an American modern by ShiPu Wang( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Chiura Obata (1885-1975) was one of the most significant Japanese American artists working on the West Coast in the last century. Born in Okayama, Japan, Obata emigrated to the United States in 1903 and embarked on a seven-decade career that saw the enactment of anti-immigration laws and the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. But Obata emerged as a leading figure in the Northern California artistic communities, serving not only as an influential art professor at UC Berkeley for nearly twenty years, but also as a founding director of art schools in the internment camps. With a prodigious and expansive oeuvre, Obata's seemingly effortless mastery of, and productive engagement with, diverse techniques, styles, and traditions defy the dichotomous categorizations of American/European and Japanese/Asian art. His faith in the power of art, his devotion to preserving the myriad grandeur of what he called "Great Nature," and his compelling personal story as an immigrant and an American are all as relevant to our contemporary moment as ever.
