Summary The history, culture, and aesthetics of the Momoyama period are explored by analyzing and reproducing masterpieces of artists in many media: paintings (including many superb screen paintings), sculpture, calligraphy, tea ceremony utensils, lacquerware, ceramics, metalwork, arms and armor, textiles, and Noh masks. A team of leading scholars and specialists in Japanese art contributes an introduction to each section with an essay that places the individual works in a broader art-historical and cultural context. This beautiful book reproduces works of art from temples and private collections in Japan which have rarely been seen, as well as the most famous masterpieces of the major museums. It also serves as the catalogue of an exhibition held at the Dallas Museum of Art in cooperation with the Japan Foundation and Japan's Agency for Cultural Affairs
