Afterword by Moroyama Masanori
This catalogue accompanies The Metropolitan Museum of Art Department of Asian Art exhibition.
Bamboo is present in nearly every aspect of traditional Japanese life, yet Japanese bamboo art, with its refined beauty and technical sophistication, has been little known in the West until recent years. This publication provides an overdue introduction to these exquisite works, which represent a cultural tradition stretching back hundreds of years. The works illustrated and discussed are exceptional for their broad representation of many notable bamboo masters, and highlight key stages in the modern history of Japanese bamboo art.
Monika Bincsik is Assistant Curator in the Department of Asian Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
Moroyama Masanori is Curator of the Crafts Gallery at The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo.
