Organized into ten thematic chapters, this ambitious work engages with Japanese art in the Edo era in order to present the reader with a thorough overview of its meanings and uses. The initial chapters describe the artistic traditions, auspicious images, commercial and social aspects of art, and the specific uses and meanings of different kinds of art. The remaining chapters describe different schools and types of art, including portraiture, the idealizing function of ukiyo-e, and Buddhist art, concluding with the impact of the arrival of Europeans. Screech teaches history of art at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), U. of London. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
