Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This catalog, published in conjunction with an exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum, features more than 80 works of over 40 Kyoto nihonga artists in the Griffith and Patricia Way Collection. Focusing principally (but not exclusively) on two central figures, Tsuji Kako and his pupil Tomita Keisen, the catalog successfully explains the evolution of the Kyoto nihonga style. Essays by scholars bring to light the fundamental elements related to this late 19th-century and early 20th-century art movement, a painting style influenced by Western and yet anchored in Japanese tradition. Contributors discuss a wide range of issues that provide the crucial context for this work. Stunning full-color illustrations are accompanied by biographical information about each artist and short, narrative entries on his or her work. Edited by two Japanese art historians, and containing a chart of nihonga-related institutions and major exhibitions, this book could stand proudly on the shelf of any research library.ALucia S.
