Early Ukiyo-e Master: Okumura Masanobu

Vergez, Robert

Hardcover. New York, Harper & Row Publishers, 1st, 1983, Book: Very Good, Dust Jacket: Very Good, 48 pages. Hardcover. Color and b/w illustrations throughout. Gallery price tag on cover. In great shape for its age. Just a small bit of smudging on front flyleaf. Beautiful full-page color plates. Artist illustrations on front and back covers. From the front flap: "The whole of the colorful and boisterous history of ukiyo-e-- the art of Japanese woodblock prints that arose in the seventeenth century and declined in the nineteenth--can be virtually summarized in the works of two great artists, Okumura Masanobu and Katsushika Hokusai. ...Of the two, Masanobu (1686-1764) was undoubtedly the more influential, for he was the major artistic force of the formative years of the art... This book, which presents a concise overview of Masanobu's life and works, is the first in the English language to be devoted solely to this early master."
