About this title


The chief purpose of this modest little book is to present for Westerners some of the gorgeous paintings found on fans used in tne traditional Japanese Non drama. Painting as limited to conform to the fan shape has teen practiced for hundreds of years in Japan, even hy such immortal artists as Sotatsu and Korin. Until now, however, there has heen no popularly availahle volume of reproductions to reveal the almost limitless possibilities in color, design, and perspective within this restricted form of painting, The artists whose works are reproduced in this book are unknown, and the time when the works were painted can only he estimated as early (1601-1741), middle ( 1742-1791 ) , or late ( 1792-1867 ) Totugawa, the period of Japanese history that extended from the beginning of the seventeenth century to well past the middle of the nineteenth.
