A Dictionary of Japanese Artists

Painting, Sculpture, Ceramics, Prints, Lacquer

by Laurance P. Roberts

This is a limited-edition reprint of the most compre-hensive and authoritative dictionary of Japanese artists yet published. The pertinent facts related to approximately 3000 painters, printmakers, sculptors, potters, and lacquerware makers born before 1900 are concisely listed, including their art names (in kanji and romanized), brief biographies, descriptions of their work, collections in which their work is included, and books and periodicals in which their work is discussed or illustrated. Extensive appendixes, glossary, biblio-graphy and complete indexes—including artists by alternate names and Japanese characters—make this an essential reference for all those interested in Japanese and East Asian art.

Laurance P. Roberts, a specialist in the art of East Asia, held positions at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the American Academy in Rome.
