This lavishly illustrated volume of Japanese masterpieces from the Etsuko and Joe Price Collection, widely recognized as one of the finest private collections of Edo-period art in the world, features 225 full-color and 114 black-and-white images representing the rich aesthetic diversity that characterized the Edo period. At the collection’s core are screens, hanging scrolls, fans, and some of the best examples of the distinctive, hauntingly preternatural renderings of animal life by Ito Jakuchu, one of the most innovative and imaginative of Kyoto’s eighteenth-century painters. Essays by leading scholars of Japanese painting and architect Frank O. Gehry put both the collection and the collectors in context and provide insight into the wonders of Japanese art.
