From the Publisher

Masterpieces of Japanese Screen Painting unites thirty-seven extraordinary Japanese screns in American collections. Together they represent the most important artists and schools of screen painting, and provide a balanced overview of the formats and techniques used and the wide range of subjects depicted. The works in this volume were created during the greatest eras of screen painting: the Muromachi period (1392 - 1573), when monochromatic ink painting came to be regarded as the only medium worthy of an important artist; the Momoayama period (1573 - 1615), the "golden age" of screen painting; and the Edo period (1615 - 1868), one of the most artistically prolific eras in history. In her introduction and commentaries on each screen, Dr. Miyeoko Murase explores the functional and decorative roles that screens, which had originated in China, established in Japan. Screens of varying sizes had always been traditional features of domestic design, as they were used to create private spacse in the typical Japanese loft-like interior. Later, feudal lords, eager to decorate their castles in a sumptuous manner that would publicly convey their wealth, commissioned artists to paint on a large scale with brilliant colours, as well as with generous amounts of gold and silver leaf.

Seller Comments:

Elephant Folio. pp. 232, as new, "This magnificently illustrated oversized book contains color reproductions of 37 screens from the Muromachi through the Edo periods (1392-1868). Painted screens were a major component of traditional Japanese architecture, and their decoration reflected the leading schools and movements in Japanese art. Unfortunately, very few screens are extant in their original settings, making the book's 13 gatefold illustrations especially valuable: nearly 5 feet wide when opened, the gatefolds give an excellent impression of how the screens really looked and allow the viewer to "read" the objects from right to left, as their creators intended. Columbia University art professor Murase's brief but clear commentary opens the book; other textual material includes descriptions of each screen reproduced, a glossary, and short biographies of the artists whose work is presented. Valuable for the quality and presentation of its illustrations."
