The history of Japanese photography by Anne Tucker( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past 150 years, Japanese photographers have created an impressive body of work that ranges from dignified imperial portraits to sweeping urban panoramas, from early ethereal landscapes to modern urban mysteries. Despite the richness, significance, and variety of this work, however, it has largely been neglected in Western histories of photography. This gorgeous and groundbreaking book - the first comprehensive account of Japanese photography from its inception in the mid-nineteenth century to the present day - reveals to English-speaking audiences the importance and beauty of this art form."--Jacket

Japanese products - from automobiles to electronic equipmentwere sold in record numbers the world over, and Japanese brand names became synonymous with high quality." "Now that the boom of the 1980s has given way to a recession, what is the country's designed and built environment like, and what are the factors that determine it? This attractive volume and the traveling exhibition it accompanies seek to address these questions. Essays written by experts in their fields are accompanied by impressive color plates to present Japanese architecture and design of the 1990s to a Western readership for the first time."--Jacket

Between action and the unknown : the art of Kazuo Shiraga and Sadamasa Motonaga by Kōichi Kawasaki( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive book is the first in English to examine two of the most successful and important postwar Japanese artists, Kazuo Shiraga (1924-2008) and Sadamasa Motonaga (1922-2011). During an 18-year engagement with the Gutai Art Association, both artists experimented with unorthodox techniques, such as Motonaga's use of smoke and water, or Shiraga's method of painting with his feet. Relatively little, however, is known in the West about Shiraga and Motonaga beyond their involvement with Gutai. Essays aim to assert the importance of Shiraga's and Motonaga's post-Gutai careers-when they pursued exciting new styles and themes in their work-as well as to evaluate the legacy of Japan's postwar avant-garde. Never-before-translated interviews with the artists, incisive essays by experts in the field, and a beautiful color plate section featuring many works never before seen outside of Japan complete this impressive catalogue.0Exhibition: Dallas Museum of Arts, Dallas, USA (08.02-19.07.2015)

The life of animals in Japanese art by Robert T Singer( Book )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sweeping exploration of animals in Japanese art and culture across sixteen centuries. Few countries have devoted as much artistic energy to the depiction of animal life as Japan. Drawing upon the country's unique spiritual heritage, rich literary traditions, and currents in popular culture, Japanese artists have long expressed admiration for animals in sculpture, painting, lacquerwork, ceramics, metalwork, textiles, and woodblock prints. Real and fantastic creatures are meticulously and beautifully rendered, often with humor and whimsy. This beautiful book celebrates this diverse range of work, from ancient fifth-century clay sculpture to contemporary pieces. The catalog is organized into themes, including the twelve animals of the Japanese zodiac; animals in Shinto and Buddhism; animals and samurai; land animals, winged creatures, and creatures of the river and sea; and animals in works of humor and parody. Exhibition: National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, USA (05.05.-28.07.2019) / Los Angeles County Museum of Art, USA (08.09.-08.12.2019)
New dimensions of peacekeeping( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work brings together the papers presented at a conference on New Dimensions of Peacekeeping which was convened at the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva in March 1994. The papers address the new role of peacekeeping (including peacekeeping and peace enforcement) which now emerges - and also places an emphasis upon the role of the "new comers" in peacekeeping, specifically Japan and Germany. The collection of papers, by many distinguished scholars in the field, actively discuss both the strengths and weaknesses of the United Nations peacekeeping efforts in meeting the increasing demands placed upon it due to the enormous upsurge in ethnic, religious and other local conflicts."--Jacket
