With Essays and Catalogue Entries by Edwin A. Cranston, Fumiko E. Cranston, Kumakura Isao, et al.
Available exclusively through the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Arts of Hon'ami Koetsu, Japanese Renaissance Master exhibition catalogue provides an unprecedented wealth of exquisite images and information about more than 100 objects-ranging from calligraphy and printed books to lacquerwork and ceramics-accompanied by major essays on the life and career of the artist who revolutionized the art of 17th-century Japan. Designed by Katy Homans, the 220-page publication features 187 illustrations-142 in color, including two sectional fold-outs presenting spectacular works such as a pair of painted screens from the Tokyo National Museum affixed with shikishi, or poem cards, that are the earliest extant examples of collaboration between Koetsu and his much-esteemed colleague, Tawaraya Sotatsu.
