9784805310960: Sumi-e: The Art of Japanese Ink Painting

In this Japanese ink painting book renowned Japanese master Shozo Sato offers his own personal teaching on the beautiful art of sumi-e painting.

Sumi-e: The Art of Japanese Ink Painting provides step-by-step, photo-by-photo instructions to guide learners in the correct form, motions and techniques of Japanese sumi-e painting.

Featuring gorgeous images and practical advice, it includes guided instructions for 35 different paintings. From waterfalls to bamboo, learners paint their way to understanding sumi-e—a style of painting that is characteristically Asian and has been practiced for well over 1,000 years. Although it's sometimes confused with calligraphy, as the tools used are the same, sumi-e instead tries to capture the essence of an object or scene in the fewest possible strokes.

This all-in-one resource also provides a timeline of brush painting history, a glossary of terms, a guide to sources and an index—making it a tool to use and treasure, for amateurs and professionals alike. This sumi-e introduction is ideal for anyone with a love of Japanese art or the desire to learn to paint in a classic Asian style.

About the Author:

Shozo Sato is a master of traditional Zen arts. His areas of expertise include ikebana (flower arranging), chanoyu (tea ceremony), and Japanese theater, as well as sumi-e. He conducts workshops on ikebana and sumi-e throughout the U.S., Asia and Europe and is the author of numerous books including Ikebana and The Art of Sumi-e. He was the founding director of Japan House at the University of Illinois, where he is Professor Emeritus. Sato resides in Fort Bragg, CA.

Review:

"Sumi-e: The Art of Japanese Painting is a wonderful addition to sources in English about this ancient art. This is no mere 'how to' book. Author Shozo Sato brings a complete picture, from its early history to the present for the reader. The tools, the methods and, most importantly, the artistic philosophy are all explained. It is a perfect book for the newcomer to sumi-e but it also covers more modern experimental techniques and subjects for the experienced painter. The illustrations are beautiful and the stunning large painting, "Fury of the Pacific", gives the reader an in-depth view of a masterpiece of 20th-century ink painting. No library of Japanese painting should be without this publication." —Betzi Robinson, former President of the Sumi-e Society of America; former Editor of Sumi-e Magazine; Vice-President of the National Capital Area Chapter of the Sumi-e Society
