Presenting some 100 ink paintings produced mainly in the 1920s and 30s by little-known Japanese artist Unrei (1881-1962), this catalogue offers the first review of an oeuvre composed largely of landscapes executed in the Chinese-influenced nanga style that flourished in Japan during the 18th and 19th centuries. Includes a historical review of the rise of the nanga movement and its decline in the era of Japan's modernization, a discussion of Unrei's role in preserving its spiritual and stylistic traditions, and a detailed chronicle of the artist's reclusive life and career.
