A richly illustrated book of  Kyosai's animal paintings

The Japanese artist Kawanabe Kyosai (1831-1889) delighted in the depiction of animals - auspicious crows, frogs in the schoolroom, rats on trapezes, catfish in procession, elephants performing tricks - and frequently used them as proxies for political figures of the day, to avoid censorship. This enchanting book reveals a cavalcade of Kyosai's creatures from the Israel Goldman Collection, with an introduction to the artist and his menagerie by Koto Sadamura, a leading authority on Kyosai.
