Ink and Gold. Art of the Kano

Серия: "-"

The Kano lineage of painters - the most important in Japan-was established in the late 15th century by Kano Masanobu (1434-1530) and continued for over 450 years, until the early 20th century. Originally limited to successive generations of the Kano family, it soon developed into a school of professional artists. Ink and Gold is the first and most comprehensive book published outside of Japan to address the Kano painters. Lavishly illustrated with some 380 color images, this important volume focuses on the large-scale screens and sliding doors that were designed for the residences of powerful rulers, together with smaller works such as scrolls, albums, and fans. These works demonstrate the range of styles that Kano artists employed to suit the tastes of their varied patrons, including works for shogunate residences, Zen temples, teahouses, and homes of wealthy merchants. Essays by leading scholars address the wide range of Kano motifs and styles and also consider the particular influence of Kano Tan'yu (1602-1684). A dictionary of artists'seals and signatures, a type of resource published here for the first time, provides an important reference, as does an appendix of images from the most significant album by Tan'yu.
