Surimono in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam

Surimono in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In recent years the surimono collection of the Prentenkabinet of the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum has grown substantially due to two major donations and a dynamic acquisition policy. Presently consisting of more than 700 surimono, the Prentenkabinet collection is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the world. Having been partly cataloged in a variety of ways in the past, it was deemed necessary to create a single-volume catalog devoted exclusively to these treasures. Prof Dr Matthi Forrer has meticulously reviewed all previous descriptions, revised dates, corrected readings of poet's names and the poems, and even reclassified some prints as 'copies'. New acquisitions have also been included.

Synopsis:

This catalogue includes more than 600 "surimono" drawn from the splendid Amsterdam Rijksmuseum collection of Japanese prints. "surimono" (lit. a ~printed objecta (TM)) are privately published prints inscribed with a dedication or poem that reflects upon everyday themes. All "surimono" are reproduced in color along with extensive descriptions by Matthi Forrer. This publication will be an important reference work in the study of "surimono."
