About this product
- DescriptionThis beautifully illustrated survey examines the art and artists of the Edo period, one of the great epochs in Japanese art. Together with the imperial city of Kyoto and the port cities of Osaka and Nagasaki, the splendid capital city of Edo (w Tokyo) nurtured a magnificent tradition of painting, calligraphy, printmaking, ceramics, architecture, textile work, and lacquer. As each city created its own distinctive social, political, and ecomic environment, its art acquired a unique flavor and aesthetic. Author Christine Guth focuses on the urban aspects of Edo art, including discussions of many of Japan's most popular artists-Korin, Utamaro, and Hiroshige, among others-as well as those that are lesser kwn, and provides a fascinating look at the cities in which they worked.
- Author BiographyChristine Guth is an independent scholar. Her books include Japan & Paris: Impressionism, Postimpressionism, and the Modern Era; Longfellow's Tattoos: Tourism, Collecting, and Japan; and Art, Tea, and Industry.
