THE TRIUMPH OF JAPANESE STYLE: 16TH-CENTURY ART IN JAPAN. Michael R. Cunningham et al. Cleveland Museum of Art, 1991. Organized in association with Bunka-cho (Agency for Cultural Affairs), Tokyo. Distributed by Indiana University Press, Bloomington. 168 pp. with 161 ills. (140 col.). 24 x 29 cm. LC 91-33642 ISBN 0940717131 In English.
HARDOVER EDITION OUT OF PRINT. Accompanying an exhibition of 75 works from Japanese collections and a selection of related objects from the Museum's holdings, this catalogue traces evidence of an indigenous Japanese aesthetic in art produced prior to the revolutionary Momoyama period (1568-1615), challenging the view that early 16th-century art in Japan was entirely dominated by Chinese and other East Asian influences. Features lengthy commentaries thoroughly discussing the featured works (which include elaborately decorated screens, scroll paintings, lacquerware, textiles and ceramics) and a lucid essay surveying Japanese cultural history from the 8th through the 16th century which describes political and religious transitions and the artists and groups involved in the re-emergence of styles distinctive to Japan.
