Description
This catalog provides a historical overview of the development of Japanese art through masterpieces in the Mary Griggs Burke collection, describing some 200 works from the Protoliterate Era (ca. 10,000 BC) through the Edo period (16251868 AD) and depicting them in 320 color reproductions (some spanning two pages) and 129 black and white figures.

"[Miyeko] Murase, a Columbia University professor and research curator at the Metropolitan Museum, advised Burke in her nearly four decades of collecting activities. Following a chronological organization, he explores and demonstrates the impact of Buddhism and Chinese literati painting on the formation of the Japanese artistic tradition. Extravagantly illustrated ... and supported by a glossary are a list of selected readings, this book lives up to the Metropolitan Museum standard."Library Journal
