Description:
'S tatsu' is a beautifully designed volume celebrating the influential early seventeenth-century Japanese painter Tawaraya S tatsu. This book, the first Western survey of this important artist, accompanies the Smithsonian's Arthur M. Sackler Gallery exhibition of the same name. Tawaraya S tatsu was a commoner who introduced traditional Japanese themes and subjects, formerly the sole purview of the aristocracy, to broader audiences. He painted these nationalistic images using a bold, expressive new design style. This characteristic style was further developed and enhanced when he founded the historic Rinpa school with calligrapher Hon'ami K etsu; Rinpa works are marked by dramatic, stylized renderings of traditional Japanese themes. Essays by leading scholars from the United States and Japan focus on S tatsu's well-known works; his collaboration with K etsu; his varied roles as shopkeeper, compiler, and court painter; and his influence over other artists, including Ogata K rin, Ogata Kenzan, Sakai H itsu, and Suzuki Kiitsu. The book also examines Freer Gallery of Art founder Charles Lang Freer's role in introducing S tatsu and K etsu to the Western world. 'S tatsu' is a must-have book for museumgoers, Japanophiles, art lovers, and scholars.'
