Japanese Netsuke: Serious Art: Outstanding Works from American Collecti
A comprehensive survey of the major schools and masters in 66 fine examples, this catalogue is an indication of the developing serious interest in netsuke. Several full-colour photographs of each work, taken from every useful angle, accompany educative and entertaining text. This, the first of Sydney L. Moss gallery's consistently high quality "mission to explain" trilogy of hardback netsuke publications (along with Zodiac Beasts and Remarkable Netsuke), features a character glossary, a select bibliography and a map of feudal Japan.
