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

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 505 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."--
Drama and desire : Japanese paintings from the floating world, 1690-1850( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drama and Desire presents sixty-nine masterpieces of ukiyo-e painting by such renowned artists as Hokusai, Utamaro, Harunobo, and others, all depicting aspects of the so-called "floating world"--The licentious demi monde of Edo (modern-day Tokyo) where actors and courtesans, rich patrons and bohemians cavorted. While woodblock prints of the floating world have long been a favorite of art lovers, far less known and much less available have been the remarkable paintings of the period, rendered by some of Japan's most renowned artists with a rare freedom of expression. In Drama and Desire, wistful interiors of courtesans at rest and onstage panoramas of actors in their finery jostle with explicitly erotic scenes of lovemaking and outrageous fantasies. Essays by American and Japanese scholars, including Howard Hibbett and Kobayashi Tadashi, set the context with discussions of Udo society and culture, the ways in which "high" and "low" arts mixed in ukiyo-e painting, and the prominent roles played by courtesans, geishas, and male prostitutes in the subculture of the "floating world.""--Jacket
