Kabuki heroes on the Osaka stage, 1780-1830 by C. Andrew Gerstle( Book )

19 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review: "Kabuki Heroes is about collective participation in urban culture - on the stage, in poetry salons, in art studios and in fan clubs. Focusing on the culture of Kabuki theatre in Osaka and Kyoto, it illustrates the passionate hero worship of actors by all levels of society. Fans vigorously engaged in the creation of celebrity and fame for their idols, and thereby won their own moments of glory and glamour in the spotlight. Many of these participants are represented here - most of them ordinary townsmen, but also a few samurai and courtiers. This interactive nature of Kabuki culture is particularly intriguing: the actors themselves not only appeared on stage, but involved themselves in other cultural circles such as poetry salons. Kabuki fan clubs, on the other hand, performed formal rituals at the theatre, individual fans became amateur performers, while others created lavish colour prints and books to support favourite actors and spread their fame." "This catalogue illustrates that our obsession with celebrity is not just a modern phenomenon: in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Osaka we can rediscover many elements in common with our own times. Most importantly, after the spread of new colour-woodblock printing technology in the late 1760s, a golden age of popular Kabuki culture was promoted far and wide with beautifully coloured prints and books. The fine examples brought together here from leading public and private collections in Europe and Japan evoke a fascinating period when theatre, art and poetry were essential elements of social and cultural life."--BOOK JACKET

Hokusai : beyond the great wave by Hokusai Katsushika( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and Italian and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An acknowledged master during his lifetime, Hokusai created sublime works during the last thirty years of his life, right up to his death at the age of ninety. His long artistic career is often presented as a chronological sequence. This publication takes a fresh approach based on innovative scholarship: thematic groupings of late works are related to the major spiritual and artistic quests of Hokusai's life. Hokusai's personal beliefs are contemplated here through analyses of major brush paintings, drawings, woodblock prints and illustrated books. Due attention is also paid to the contribution of Hokusai's daughter Eijo (Ōi), an accomplished artist in her own right. Hokusai continually explored the mutability and minutiae of natural phenomena in his art. His late subjects and styles were based on a mastery of eclectic Japanese, Chinese and European techniques and an encyclopaedic knowledge of nature, myth, and history."--
Kuniyoshi : from the Arthur R. Miller Collection by Timothy Clark( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handsome volume explores the life and work of Utagawa Kuniyoshi (17981861), one of Japans greatest print artists. Alongside such illustrious names as Hokusai and Hiroshige, he dominated the nineteenth-century production of the popular genre of woodblock prints known as ukiyo-e, literally, pictures of the floating world. The only major book to illustrate the entirety of the artists work, Kuniyoshi explores his extraordinary imagination across an impressive range of subject matter, from portraits of Japanese warrior heroes and fashionable beauties to satirical themes and innovative landscape prints. Alongside exquisite reproductions of his finest prints, examples of Kuniyoshi's original drawings highlight his unique approach to composition and provide valuable insight into the creative process of this prolific and multitalented artist. Published to accompany a spectacular exhibition, Kuniyoshi is an essential reference for Japanese art collectors and enthusiasts
Shunga : sex and pleasure in Japanese art by Timothy Clark( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue aims to answer some key questions about what is shunga and why it was produced. In particular the social and cultural contexts for sex art in Japan are explored. Erotic Japanese art was heavily suppressed in Japan from the 1870s onwards as part of a process of cultural 'modernisation' that imported many contemporary western moral values. Only in the last twenty years or so has it been possible to publish unexpurgated examples in Japan and this landmark book places erotic Japanese art in its historical and cultural context for the first time. This book looks at painted and printed erotic images produced in Japan during the Edo period (1600-1868) and early Meiji era (1868-1912). These are related to the wider contexts of literature, theatre, the culture of the pleasure quarters, and urban consumerism; and interpreted in terms of their sensuality, reverence, humour and parody.

Kitagawa Utamaro by Utamaro Kitagawa( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in 3 languages and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kitagawa Utamaro (1754?-1806) is the pivotal artist of the Ukiyo-e school. His sensuous and sharp-witted portrayal of women in all walks of life both celebrate and comment on those of the "Floating World". Discovered early in his career, Utamaro was soon collaborating with the leading writers of the 1790s. The culmination was a sequence of deluxe poetry anthologies, which he illustrated in colour woodblock with figure and nature subjects and erotic scenes. In the 1790s Utamaro transformed the style of Ukiyo-e art with his prolific ouput of print series: often portraits in the new bust and half-length formats. High-ranked courtesans, lovers from literature and ordinary domestic scenes - all these themes are explored. Boastful of his talents, Utamaro finally came into collision with the feudal authorities, suffering house arrest that accelerated his artistic decline and led to his death. This text is published to accompany a British Museum exhibition in two parts, organized with the Chiba City Museum, Japan. The work includes rare surviving hanging scroll paintings, wood-block prints in complete series and all of Utamaro's illustrated books."--Provided by publisher

A Japanese menagerie : animal pictures by Kawanabe Kyōsai by Rosina Buckland( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a long and vital tradition in East Asian art of animal painting. In Japan, pictures of animals have often been imbued with human characteristics for humorous, even satirical purposes. Kawanabe Kyosai (1831-89) was a highly individualistic painter of the late Edo and early Meiji eras, his career spanning from the end of the feudal system to the beginnings of rapid modernization. His name meant 'crazy studio' and in the 1860s he developed a new genre of 'crazy pictures' (kyoga). Kyosai's works range from painstakingly detailed painted works, to spontaneous and inspired sketches dashed off while drinking prodigious amounts of sake. Many of his designs were made into popular colour prints and illustrated books. Kyosai found an important source of inspiration for his art in the example of the medieval monk-painter Toba Sojo (Kakuyu, 1053-1140), whose comic sketches of animals were thought to satirise the pretensions of the society of his time. In a similar way, Kyosai often made animals the agents for his own light-hearted commentary on the new Meiji Japan. This book illustrates seventy-two of Kyosai's most colourful and comic pictures of animals, from cats to mice, and frogs to elephants. Beautifully designed, and with three short introductory chapters on the artist and his work, and a foreword by Israel Goldman, this is a perfect introduction to the weird and wonderful animal-inhabited world of Kyosai"--Publisher's description
