"A long-needed presentation of Japanese art that concisely offers inclusive coverage from prehistoric times to the twentieth century."—Choice


This is a revised and expanded edition of a 1984 work. Stanley-Baker, an authority in Asian art who has been involved in the field since 1964, addresses readers who are approaching Japanese art for the first time. She surveys selected traditions (there's no attempt to be comprehensive), identifying aspects of the Japanese spirit and culture that are developed in the art forms and offering close looks at many examples. This small book contains 167 illustrations, 48 in color. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
