This two-volume publication represents the only comprehensive documentation of one of the finest private collections of Asian art in the world. More than 1,000 works of art are shown in exquisite color reproductions, along with a special reference section of illustrated and translated texts, signatures, and seals. Since the collection will be dispersed for public use, Art Through a Lifetime provides the only opportunity for scholars, students, and admirers of Asian art to enjoy it in its entirety.
The first volume of this boxed set presents Japanese paintings, printed works, and calligraphy that date from the Nara period to the late 20th century. The second volume presents the remainder of the Japanese works - ceramics, lacquer, metalwork, sculpture, and textiles - along with an extensive array of Korean and Chinese works of art.
