Buddhist treasures from Nara by Michael R Cunningham( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among collections of Buddhist art, the museum at Nara towers over others as dramatically as its great pagodas dominate the surrounding countryside. This catalogue commemorates a historic exchange of exhibitions between the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Nara National Museum that brings the treasures of this collection for the first time to the West. Each of these transcendent objects is discussed in detail by curator Michael Cunningham, and essays by John Rosenfield and Mimi Hall Yiengpruksawan brilliantly illuminate their historical and cultural context. Together the authors describe the journey of these works of art through time, from their creation as objects of veneration and spiritual practice, through their decline in the regard of the nationalist culture of the nineteenth century, to their recovery of spiritual authority in the twentieth."--Jacket

"Over the past four decades, Kimiko and John Powers amassed what has become recognized as the premier collection of Japanese art in the United States. One of the largest and most comprehensive collections outside of Japan, the Powers Collection contains 300 works, including 17th- and 18th-century scholarly paintings, hanging scrolls, Buddhist wood and lacquer sculptures, calligraphy, and illuminated documents. Unrivalled Splendor showcases eighty-six masterworks from this vaunted collection, featuring examples that illustrate the religious, social, intellectual, and aesthetic values of Japan across several centuries. A statement by Kimiko Powers describes the collection, followed by an introductory essay by Christine Starkman. Additionally, an essay by Miyeko Murase explores the contributions of Soga Shohaku, an innovative, prolific 18th-century painter. Insightful texts that draw on the research and writings of John M. Rosenfield delve into the particulars of the featured works"--
Portraits of Chōgen : the transformation of Buddhist art in early medieval Japan by John M Rosenfield( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in English and Chinese and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume vividly describes the efforts of the Japanese monk Shunjōbō Chōgen (1121-1206) to restore major buildings and works of art lost in the brutal civil conflicts of the 1180s. Chōgen is best known for his role in recasting the Great Buddha (Daibutsu) at Tōdaiji in Nara, reconstructing the South Great Gate (Nandaimon), and making the famous guardian statues there. This study concentrates on these and other works of art and architecture associated with Chōgen, situating them in the turbulent political and social climate of Japan and in the larger spiritual contexts of East Asian Buddhism
Preserving the dharma : Hōzan Tankai and Japanese Buddhist art of the early modern era by John M Rosenfield( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this beautifully illustrated book, eminent art historian John Rosenfield explores the life and art of the Japanese Buddhist monk Hozan Tankai (1629-1716). Through a close examination of sculptures, paintings, ritual implements, and primary documents, the book demonstrates how the Shingon prelate's artistic activities were central to his important place in the world of late-seventeenth-century Japanese Buddhism. At the same time, the book shows the richness of early modern Japanese Buddhist art, which has often been neglected and undervalued. Tankai was firmly committed to the spiritual disciplines of mountain Buddhism-seclusion, severe asceticism, meditation, and ritual. But in the 1680s, after being appointed head of a small, run-down temple on the slopes of Mount Ikoma, near Nara, he revealed that he was also a gifted artist and administrator. He embarked on an ambitious campaign of constructing temple halls and commissioning icons, and the Ikoma temple, soon renamed Hōzanji, became a vibrant center of popular Buddhism, as it remains today. He was a remarkably productive artist, and by the end of his life more than 150 works were associated with him. A major reconsideration of a key artistic and religious figure, Preserving the Dharma brings much-needed attention to an overlooked period of Japanese Buddhist art"--
