About this Item

The years 1573-1615 describe the Momoyama period in Japan, which was one of the most dynamic and energetic eras in the country's history. It has been called, as this book title does, 'Japan's Golden Age.' During this period, Japan adopted many Western ideas and the arts flourished, with new styles and forms in painting, furnishings, architecture and armor. This Mint-copy book describes it all with a grand display of illustrations that will warm your heart, and make you want to book tickets for a journey. Or for much less, you can obtain this book. Great gift idea for yourself, or for someone else you love a lot. DJ protected in Mylar. Size: Quarto. Bookseller Inventory # 001717

About this title

Synopsis:

The history, culture, and aesthetics of the Momoyama period are explored by analyzing and reproducing masterpieces of artists in many media: paintings (including many superb screen paintings), sculpture, calligraphy, tea ceremony utensils, lacquerware, ceramics, metalwork, arms and armor, textiles, and Noh masks. A team of leading scholars and specialists in Japanese art contributes an introduction to each section with an essay that places the individual works in a broader art-historical and cultural context.
This beautiful book reproduces works of art from temples and private collections in Japan which have rarely been seen, as well as the most famous masterpieces of the major museums. It also serves as the catalogue of an exhibition held at the Dallas Museum of Art in cooperation with the Japan Foundation and Japan's Agency for Cultural Affairs.
