Hokusai and Hiroshige : great Japanese prints from the James A Michener Collection, Honolulu Academy of Arts by Hokusai Katsushika( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the 1800s, when the artists Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Hiroshige lived and worked, commoners enjoyed the numerous amenities of Edo (Tokyo), the world's largest city (pop. ca. 800,000). They launched businesses, perfected crafts, gained leisure time and literacy, traveled a coherent system of safe roads, and enjoyed art, poetry, a seemingly limitless taste for novelty, and the income to indulge them." "Ukiyo-e prints - 'pictures of the floating world' - reflect the lives of the Edo commoners. In Hokusai's and Hiroshige's prints, we see the faces of this new middle class, both the excitement and drudgery of their daily activities, and favorite views of the landmarks and natural wonders they beheld." "Most of the 200 ukiyo-e prints in this book (100 by Hokusai, 100 by Hiroshige) are from the distinguished James A. Michener Collection of the Honolulu Academy of Arts." "Included in their entirety are Hokusai's series, Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, and Hiroshige's series, Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road, along with selections from their other major series."--Jacket

Taishō chic : Japanese modernity, nostalgia, and deco by Kendall H Brown( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Catalogue entries on popular songbooks, kimono, and decorative arts further investigate the potent relations between styles and ideologies imported from the West and those newly established as Japanese tradition. The nihonga paintings, woodblock prints, textiles, and domestic artifacts discussed and illustrated here come primarily from the Honolulu Academy of Arts, which organized the exhibition documented by this book. Many of these works have never been published and several major paintings, exhibited in Japan during the 1920s and 1930s then lost after the war, are brought to light here for the first time in decades. This catalogue not only presents newly discovered works but also, in bringing together a broad range of objects representative of mainstream Taisho visual culture, reconstructs the styles popular from 1915 to 1935 in a celebration of Taisho Chic."--Jacket

"Mu Xin (b. 1927) is one of the leading artist-intellectuals of the Chinese diaspora. Now living in New York City, he is known for his complex writings and paintings. A formidable figure in the cultural and intellectual history of Chinese modernism, Mu Xin is admired for his unique synthesis of Chinese and Western aesthetic sensibilities and intellectual traditions.
