About this title


     This is the first book of its kind devoted to Zen art as a living tradition – published in conjunction with a touring exhibit of twentieth-century Zen art that will be on display at the Los Angeles County Museum, the University of Richmond, Virginia, and other locations.


     Zen art has long been acknowledged as a priceless legacy of Japanese culture. Zen teachers believe that visual art, such as painting, calligraphy, and ceramics, can reveal Zen mind more directly than can words alone. While previous books have focused on works from earlier centuries, The Art of Twentieth-Century Zen explores the heart of the Zen cultural experience with contemporary Zen art, demonstrating how this time-honored visual form continues to flourish today. Through their personal, dramatic, and often humorous brushwork, the great Zen masters of our own century have continued to create striking new expressions of their own Zen insight.

About the Author:

Stephen Addiss, PhD, is Professor of Art at the University of Richmond in Virginia. A scholar-artist, he has exhibited his ink paintings and calligraphy in Asia, Europe, and the United States. He is also the author or coauthor of more than thirty books and catalogues about East Asian arts, including The Sound of One Hand: The Paintings and Calligraphy of Zen Master Hakuin.
