Japanese Art (World of Art S.)

Japanese Art (World of Art S.)

by JoanStanley-Baker (Author)


The uniqueness of Japanese culture rests on the fact that, throughout its history, Japan has continually taken, adapted and transformed diverse influences, whether from Korea, China, the South Seas, Europe or America, into distinct traditions of its own. This book surveys the arts of Japan from the prehistoric period to the present, bringing together the results of the most recent research on the subject. Profusely illustrated with examples from all the arts--painting, calligraphy, the decorative arts and architecture-- Japanese Art is a succinct and provocative overview of a fascinating culture. 167 illus., 20 in color.
