The Burke Collection of Japanese art is recognized worldwide as the most significant collection of Japanese art in private hands. This catalogue presents 168 masterpieces from the collection that date from the Protoliterate era (ca. 10,000 B.C.) through the Edo period (1615–1868), including handscrolls and hanging scrolls, woodblock prints, large screens, lacquerware, and ceramics. The text is written by the renowned scholar Miyeko Murase, the principal adviser to Mary Griggs Burke in the development of the collection. Murase presents Japanese art as an eloquent expression of Japanese culture; more than a record of an important exhibition, this stunning volume takes its place as a key resource for understanding and appreciating the art and culture of Japan.
