xiv, 450 pp., illus. (chiefly col.); 32 cm. Published in conjunction with the exhibition "The art of Japan from the Mary Griggs Burke collection" held March 28 to June 25, 2000. ... Firm binding, clean inside copy. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. Richly illustrated with colour plates. "The Mary Griggs Burke Collection, represented in this volume and in the exhibition it accompanies, is a testimony to the intensity and selectivity of Mrs. Burke's collecting, guided by a discerning eye, a deep affection for Japan, and an appreciation of the country's cultural heritage. Long recognized as one of the finest collections of Japanese art in private hands, the Mary Griggs Burke Collection is the largest and most comprehensive outside Japan. While it provides a historical overview of the development of Japanese art, the collection illustrates as well Japan's capacity to foster divergent artistic traditions both from other cultures and from those that reflect indigenous tastes. It also demonstrates the profound impact of Buddhism on Japanese culture, the tastes and values of the courtly and military elite, and the interests of patrons who range from Sinophile rulers and scholars to pleasure-seeking urbanites." - Publisher.

The works include handscrolls and hanging scrolls, woodblock prints, large screens, lacquerware, and ceramics. The text is written by the renowned scholar Miyeko Murase, the principal adviser to Mary Griggs Burke in the development of the collection. Murase presents Japanese art as an eloquent expression of Japanese culture; more than a record of an important exhibition, this stunning volume will takes its place as a key resource for understanding and appreciating the art and culture of Japan. 500 illustrations, 400 in full color, 9 x 12

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Accompanying an exhibition of masterpieces from the Mary Griggs Burke collection, the largest and most encompassing private collection of Japanese art outside of Japan, this exhibition catalog showcases the finest works of the collection, dating from the proto-literate era (ca. 10,500 B.C.E.-ca. 300 B.C.E.) through the Edo period (1615-1868). Murase, a Columbia University professor and research curator at the Metropolitan Museum, advised Burke in her nearly four decades of collecting activities. Following a chronological organization, he explores and demonstrates the impact of Buddhism and Chinese literati painting on the formation of the Japanese artistic tradition. Extravagantly illustrated--more than two thirds of the nearly 450 illustrations in color--and supported by a glossary are a list of selected readings, this book lives up to Metropolitan Museum standard. This handsome volume will be a delightful addition to large art collections in academic and public libraries.--Lucia S. Chen, NYPL Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
