Overview

This classic primer on Japanese art and esthetics-written by a cofounder of the Tokyo Fine Art School and one of the great 19th-century experts on Asian art and archaeology-approaches the subject from a philosphical perspective, exploring the spirit and the spirituality behind the notable eras of Asian music, painting, architecture, textiles, and other realms of artistic expression. Why did the Japanese character refuse to embrace abstract art? How did religious frenzy in the Middle Ages influence live entertainment? How does Zen impact the soul of an artist? Beautifully written and highly informative, this 1883 volume will enchant and enlighten lovers of Japanese art.

Japanese scholar and writer KAKUZO OKAKURA (1863-1913) helped spread interest in Asian art and culture to the Western world. He is also the author of The Book of Tea (1906).
