JAPANESE PORTRAIT SCULPTURE., Hisashi Mori.  Translated and adapted by W. Chie Ishibashi.
42 Hisashi Mori. Translated and adapted by W. Chie Ishibashi. JAPANESE PORTRAIT SCULPTURE.
Kodansha, Tokyo, 1977, first English language edition. 
150 pp, small 4to (10 5/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0870112864 Profusely illustrated with b&w and color photographs. "A vital, rich tradition for over eight centuries, Japanese portrait sculpture is an art that has been unjustly ignor ed by the West. This book, the first in a Western language devoted solely to the subject, constitutes a major step in the transition from indifference to appreciation....(it) illuminates the principal characteristics and eccentricities of t h i s a r t , concisely delineating its social setting and historical and stylistic development. An intelligent discussion of individual works completes the picture, allowing the reader to evaluate, for the first time, the range and depth of th is l on g- n eg le ct ed art. Many of the obscurities of Japanese portrait sculpture are derived from its birth and development within the traditions of Buddhist sculpture. The use of statues as objects of worship, the depositing within them of com mem ora tiv e and vo tiv e o bjects, and their placement in 'portrait halls' - all these aspects of the Buddhist background are clarified in this book, giving the reader a full, insightful understanding of Japanese portrait sculpture....Lay scu lptu re d iver ged fr om t he m ains trea m of Buddhist sculpture in the thirteenth century, and though it is more easily understood than Buddhist portraiture, this books' knowlegeable description of its origins and development will greatly facilita te it s app recia tion ."

J. W. WATERHOUSE.  (J W), Hobson, Anthony.  (John W. Waterhouse.)
43 Hobson, Anthony. (John W. Waterhouse.) J. W. WATERHOUSE. (J W)
Phaidon, Oxford, (1989). 
126 pp + index, 4to (11 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated with color and b&w reproductions. "John W. Waterhouse (1849-1917) was acclaimed during his lifetime as one of England's finest painters. This judgment has been endorsed in recent years as the painter's reputation - and the value of his work - have reached new heights...He began to exhitit in the 1870s and from then on his career unfolded steadily; he was elected a full Royal Academician in 1895, and his Diploma painting, 'The Mermaid', remains one of the best-loved of all Victorian paintings. Waterhouse was a master of narrative painting, and in his historical and mythological works he displayed an unerring feeling for the dramatic moment, combined with a fine sense of composition and superb painting technique. But above all it is the haunting beauty of his wistful female models that has ensured his lasting popularity...Anthony Hobson brings a painter's eye to the appreciation of Waterhouse, and with its outstanding colour reproductions this new study will finally establish the artist as one of the great masters of Victorian painting." Faint erased pencil mark on free front endpaper, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has light rubbing, light edge wrinkling, very light edge wear at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds. VG/VG-

ISBN 9768097302 "The identities of serious women artists have too often been omitted from historical accounts and their achievements have been misunderstood or undervalued. By comparison, their male counterparts have invariably been accorded most attention and given the status of innovators. (This book) is the first comprehensive study of the subject, and makes a significant contribution towards redressing the balance. In tracing the lives and careers of over eighty of these women, it shows that New Zealand women painters, sculptors and other art makers have achieved vital and significant imagery. In doing so, it brings fresh insights to the development of the visual arts in Aotearoa." Corner crease at bottom of page 143/144, light edge wear, slight waviness to edges of textblock.

58 Lawner, Lynne. HARLEQUIN ON THE MOON: COMMEDIA DELL'ARTE AND THE VISUAL ARTS.
Harry N. Abrams, New York, 1998. 
208 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0810911949 Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "Commedia dell'arte is the first modern theater - inspiration to Shakespeare, Moliere, Goldoni, Mozart, and Balanchine and forerunner of the modern stage comedy. Since its invention as a popular entertainment in Renaissance Italy, commedia, with its stock characters, its absurd and witty plots, and its utterly charming personalities, has captivated audiences high and low, from the street fairs where Punch and Judy reigned to the exquisitely refined court of the Sun King. This book traces the history of commedia from its beginnings through many transformations to its rediscovery in the experimental theater of today. The depictions of commedia in the visual arts has a rich history. From Tiepolo and Watteau to Beardsley, Picasso, Hockney, and other modern masters, painters have found great resonance and meaning in the clowns and lovers of commedia. Here the visual and dramatic arts meet, giving birth to styles of art and performance at once clever, hilarious, poignant, tragic, and eternal. Lynne Lawner traces all these threads, unearthing rare texts of commedia plays, discovering myriad version of the ever-fascinating Harlequin, Pierrot, Columbine, and Pulcinella, relating the gossip of courts and theaters, and revealing the ways in which these figures and their classic stories - the sly servant, the foolish soldier, the clever maid, the quack doctor - have arisen again and again in art."
