    Decorative Japanese Painting: The Rinpa Aesthetic in Japanese Art

    Price : £27.50
    Online bookstores

    Revel in the brilliant world of Rinpa, the origin of Japanese decoration and the aesthetic consciousness the world has fallen in love with.

    Because of its innovative composition and design pattern, the Rinpa school, one of the historical schools in Japanese painting established in 17th-century Kyoto by Hon'ami Kōetsu and Tawaraya Sōtatsu and passed on to Ogata Kōrin, Ogata Kenzan and Sakai Hōitsu, still maintains a huge influence on the modern art and design scene. This book explores the history of Rinpa from its birth, evolution and rebirth in modern times through carefully selected artworks of important figures in Rinpa history, including many national treasures and important cultural properties. Immerse yourself in the world of Rinpa. This is the DNA of the modern Japanese art and design.
