about

Stars of the Tokyo Stage celebrates the glamor of kabuki theater amid the dynamic atmosphere of Japan in the 1920s and 30s. Natori Shunsen's superb woodblock portraits of the superstar actors of the time are exquisitely reproduced and discussed in detail, alongside a selection of spectacular costumes from the kabuki stage. Stars of the Tokyo Stage brings together essays by experts in the fields of kabuki, printmaking, and modern Japan. It is a lavishly illustrated, entertaining, and valuable resource for anyone with an interest in Japanese art, culture, and theater.

Lucie Folan is curator of Asian art at the National Gallery of Australia. Other contributors include Chiaki Ajioka, Melanie Eastburn, C. Andrew Gerstle, Robyn Maxwell, and Amy Reigle Newland.
