Tokyo : Art & PhotographyRegular price £29.95
'A seductive encounter with past and present at the Olympic city shows that Tokyo practically invented modern art' - The Guardian
A beautifully designed book which celebrates one of the world's most creative, dynamic and fascinating cities: Tokyo.
The book spans 400 years, with highlights including Kano school paintings; the iconic woodblock prints of Hiroshige; Tokyo Pop Art posters; the photography of Moriyama Daido and Ninagawa Mika; manga; film; and contemporary art by Murakami Takashi and Aida Makoto.
Visually bold and richly detailed, this publication looks at a city which has undergone constant destruction and renewal and it tells the stories of the people who have made Tokyo so famous with their insatiable appetite for the new and innovative - from the samurai to avant-garde artists today.
Co-edited by Japanese art specialists and curators Lena Fritsch and Clare Pollard from Oxford University, this accessible volume features 28 texts by international experts of Japanese culture, as well as original statements by influential artists.
