An extensive study of the elaborately adorned narrow- sleeved robe from which the modern kimono evolved, this lavishly illustrated catalogue features 150 kosode and some 50 related paintings and textiles drawn chiefly from major collections in Japan. Eight scholarly essays examine the union of art and craft embodied in the kosode, the garment's depiction in Edo-period painting, styles of pictorial and calligraphic designs on kosode, and other topics related to the robe's central social and artistic significance in Japanese culture from the 17th to the 19th century.
