About this Item

We don't know why Bertha Lum is not more celebrated, and better known. We think there should be a BERTHA LUM MARCHING AND CHOWDER SOCIETY. Her prints are exquisite, and this book is a cause for joy and excitement. Enjoy this wonderful artist, and the prints that continue to illuminate this world. Highly recommended.

About this title


Bertha Lum, an American artist active from the 1900's through the 1930's, made a significant contribution to the Japonisme movement with her woodblock prints and paintings. Lum's prints combine sinuous Art-Nouveau curves with flat planes of color that harken back to 19th century ukiyo-e. The subject of her work ranges from children to landscapes to mysterious figures from Asian folklore and legend. Perhaps because she was a foreigner and could only experience Asian life on the outside, Lum envisioned Asia as an exotic, magical place full of lantern light, swirling smoke, and smiling women, a vision which still appeals to viewers today. You will find great examples of her work in this amazing paperback book. OUT OF PRINT 112 pages 70 B&W 21 color illustration and 2 photographs ISBN 1-56098-008-7 SOFTBOUND $25.00 CONDITION: NEW BOOK
