More Description

Some of the finest private collections of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean art are found in New York City. This superbly illustrated book explores the riches found in these collections, which include some of the world's finest and most important paintings, calligraphy, sculpture, ceramics, and lacquer produced in East Asian civilizations over 5,000 years.

In this volume, which accompanies a groundbreaking exhibition organized by the Japan Society in association with the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Japanese art is presented in the rich, comparative context of Chinese and Korean art, centering on the interactive and dynamic crosscurrents that shaped Japanese culture. Informative texts and reproductions of works of extraordinary quality and rarity focus on the transmission and transformation of specific artistic practices within East Asia, such as Buddhism, ritual practice, literati arts and the tea ceremony, and depictions of nature.
