About the Author:

Foremost among Japanese art historians of his day, the author, Seiroku Noma (1902-66), had keen insight into the arts of his country and wrote about them with unequaled sensitivity. Author of countless books and articles, Noma also served as curator at the former Imperial Art Museum and then at the Tokyo National Museum, retiring as chief curator in 1964. The translator--adaptors are highly regarded authorities in their fields. John Rosenfield, the translator of volume one, is the Abbey Aldrich Rockefeller Professor of Oriental Art at Harvard University, and Glenn Webb, who translated volume two, is Associate Professor of East Asian Art History at the University of Washington.
