Summary: This book unites thirty-seven extraordinary Japanese screens in American collections. Together they represent the most important artists and schools of screen painting, and provide a balanced overview of the formats and techniques used and the wide range of subjects depicted. In her Introduction and Commentaries on each screen, Dr. Miyeko Murase explores the functional and decorative roles that screens, which had originated in China, established in Japan. This volume's oversized format was specially designed to suit the impressive size and magnitude of the screens. Thirteen screens are reproduced on gatefold pages, which measure over four feet wide when fully opened. Several screens are published here for the first time; all are reproduced in color, with the gold carefully printed, in order to capture their glowing, glorious hues.
