Hokusai's lost manga by Sarah E Thompson( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A mysterious volume advertised in 1823 as Master Iitsu's Chicken-Rib Picture Book was likely meant to be a continuation of Hokusai's famous Manga series, but a published copy of it has never been found. This eclectic and engaging collection of drawings from the peerless Japanese art holdings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, may well have been intended for that lost book. Reproduced in full for the first time as a stand-alone publication, this rare Hokusai sketchbook makes for delightful fare."--Provided by publisher
Looking east : western artists and the allure of Japan by Helen Burnham( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A craze for all things Japanese in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries brought a correspondingly radical shift in Western art, dubbed Japonisme. Leading artists, including Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet, were inspired by Japanese art and culture to create works of singular beauty. This lavishly illustrated publication explores an extraordinary moment of cross-cultural exchange by presenting a selection of major paintings, prints, drawings and decorative arts from the renowned collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Masterpieces by European and American artists are shown along with rare objects, paintings and prints from the Museum's Japanese collection, which is one of the finest in the world. Among the Western artists influenced by Japonisme, and included here, are Henry Roderick Newman, Frank Weston Benson, Alfred Stevens, John La Farge, Arthur Wesley Dow, Margaret Jordan Patterson, James McNeill Whistler, Edvard Munch, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, James Ensor, Paul Gauguin, Edgar Degas, Henri Rivière and Frederick Elkington. Their works are juxtaposed with works by Japanese artists such as Utagawa Hiroshige, Katsushika Hokusai, Okumura Masanobu, Maruyama Okyo, Kubo Shunman, Isoda Koryusai and Kikugawa Eizan, among many others. With its two introductory essays, emphasizing first Western and then Eastern perspectives, and its four thematically organized chapters, Looking East imparts the sense of discovery and excitement that characterized the development of Japonisme in Europe and North America."--Provided by publisher

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a century and a half after his death, Katsushika Hokusai is still one of Japan's most popular and influential artists. This handy volume presents the wide range of Hokusai's aristic production in terms of one of his most remarkable characteristics: his intellectual ingenuity. It attempts to show how he combined figures and landscape, represented three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface, and used the techniques of illusionism or adjusted reality for greater visual or emotional effect

"The MFA's holdings of Japanese art make up the finest and most comprehensive collection outside of Japan.

Nor is the modern world neglected, for this volume includes twentieth-century masterworks by such artists as Sugimoto Hiroshi and Murakami Takashi. In all, more than 160 highlights from this staggering collection are illustrated and discussed, divided into the themes of art of the temple, the ruling classes, the town, and Japanese art in the outside world.

Hokusai's landscapes : the complete series by Sarah E Thompson( Book )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The best known of all Japanese artists, Katsushika Hokusai was active as a painter, book illustrator, and print designer throughout his ninety-year life. Yet his most famous works of all--color woodblock landscape prints issued in series--were produced within a relatively short time, in an amazing burst of creative energy from about 1830 to 1836. These ingenious designs, combining influences from schools of Japanese and Chinese art as well as European sources, display the artist's acute powers of observation and trademark humor, often showing ordinary people from all walks of life going about their business in the foreground of famous scenic vistas. Hokusai's landscapes not only revolutionized Japanese printmaking but within a few decades of his death had become icons of world art as well. With stunning color reproductions of works from the largest collection of Japanese prints outside Japan, this book examines the magnetic appeal of Hokusai's designs and the circumstances of their creation. All published prints of his eight major landscape series--on subjects ranging from waterfalls, islands, bodies of water, and bridges, to scenes inspired by classical poetry--are included."--
Kuniyoshi Kunisada by Boston Museum of Fine Arts( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rival 'ukiyo-e' masters Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797?1861) and Utagawa Kunisada (1786?1865) were the two most admired designers of figure prints in 19th-century Japan.0Famous for the realism of his portraits of Kabuki actors, the sensuality of his beautiful women and the luxurious settings he imagined for historical scenes, Kunisada was the popular favorite during his lifetime. Kuniyoshi is loved by connoisseurs and collectors today for his dynamic action scenes of warriors and monsters (which foreshadowed present-day manga and anime), his comic prints and even a few especially daring works that included forbidden political satire in disguise. With glorious full-color illustrations, this beautifully produced volume presents Kuniyoshi and Kunisada?s artistic rivalry through a selection of outstanding works from the unparalleled Japanese art collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Tattoos in Japanese Prints by Sarah E Thompson( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the fascinating story of how, in the early nineteenth century, the color woodblock prints known as ukiyo-e first inspired tattoo artists as the pictorial tradition of tattooing in Japan was just beginning. It explores the Japanese tattoo's evolving meanings, from symbol of devotion to punishment and even to crime, and reveals the tales behind specific motifs. With lush, colorful images of flowers blooming on the arm of a thief, sea monsters coiling across the back of a hero, and legendary warriors battling on the chests of actors, the tattoos in these prints can offer the same vivid inspiration today as they did two hundred years ago."--Page 4 of cover
