Lorna Price (ed); Henry Trubner (fr); Bonnie Pitman-Gelles (fr). The Japanese crane has figured importantly in Japanese culture & art since ancient times, appearing in almost every possible medium as a universal sign of goodwill. The title “A Thousand Cranes” is a metaphor for the spiritual grace & dignity that imbue the 90 art objects & cultural relics described here. Based on the Seattle Art Mus. collection of Japanese art, this vol. will enhance your understanding of the cultural milieu in which these beautiful paintings, ceramics, lacquer ware, & screens were created. The text discusses Japan’s prehistoric period, highlights the classical taste of the Heian period, recapitulates the turbulent medieval & dynamic early modern periods, & elucidates Buddhism’s influence on Japanese art & culture.
