Otsu-e Japanese Folk Paintings - 大津絵―日本民芸館所蔵

£20.00

Product description

A lavishly illustrated study of a style of Japanese folk painting that flourished in the 17th century produced by and aimed at commoners. Buddhist subjects with a protective religious purpose were commonest at first, to which were added themes from folklore which eventually came to prevail. During the 18th century, illustrations were given a moral didactic purpose and explanatory text was introduced about the picture. Often, though, there was a satirical bite in their depiction of characters such as monks.
This 2005 hardback edition with dust jacket is in excellent condition. English and Japanese text.
