The Written Image: Japanese Calligraphy and Painting from the Sylvan Barnet and William Burto Collection
Synopses & Reviews
This unusual book presents some fifty-eight Japanese works, almost all calligraphy, including sublime early sutras; a mandala that is perhaps the finest example of its kind in the West; seminal works by such renowned figures as Myoe, Koetsu, Muso, Konoe, and Daishin; courtly letters and poems; and powerful graphic statements by Zen monk-artists.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 188-195) and index.
