Description:

Quarto. XV, 246, [1]pp. Original pictorial wrappers. Striking catalogue published to accompany an exhibition of the same name that was held at the North Carolina Museum of Art, in 1988. 73 kosode and kosode screens from the Nomura Collection form the base of the exhibition. These magnificent examples of a unique Japanese art form, now in the collection of the National Museum of Japanese History in Sakura, are joined by seventeen 20th-century kimonos from the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, which demonstrate how contemporary artists are continuing to experiment with weaving and dyeing techniques. All 90 robes are illustrated in full color and thoroughly discussed in this catalogue. Moderate soiling and sunning on wrappers. Wraps in overall fair to good, interior in very good condition.
