Publisher Comments:

This beautifully illustrated survey examines the art and artists of the Edo period, one of the great epochs in Japanese art. Together with the imperial city of Kyoto and the port cities of Osaka and Nagasaki, the splendid capital city of Edo (now Tokyo) nurtured a magnificent tradition of painting, calligraphy, printmaking, ceramics, architecture, textile work, and lacquer. As each city created its own distinctive social, political, and economic environment, its art acquired a unique flavor and aesthetic. Author Christine Guth focuses on the urban aspects of Edo art, including discussions of many of Japanand#8217;s most popular artistsand#8212;Korin, Utamaro, and Hiroshige, among othersand#8212;as well as those that are lesser known, and provides a fascinatingand#160;look atand#160;the cities in which they worked.
