About the Author

"JAMES T. ULAK is the senior curator of Japanese art at the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery. He is a specialist in the history of narrative painting in 14th- and 15th-century Japan. In 2010 the Japanese government conferred on Dr. Ulak the Order of the Rising Sun for strengthening Japan-US relations through cultural exchange. YUKIO LIPPIT is a Harris K. Weston Associate Professor of the Humanities at Harvard University. He has authored numerous books and articles on premodern Japanese painting, including Colorful Realm- Japanese Bird-and-Flower Paintings by Ito Jakuchu."


This splendid book is the catalogue of the exhibition Sotatsu: Making Waves, on view at the Sackler Museum of Art in Washington, D.C. (through January 31, 2016). The editors, Lippit and Ulak, have chosen an impressive group of specialists for the included essays (Furuta Ryo, Nakamachi Keiko, Noguchi Takeshi, Okudaira Shunroku, and Ota Aya), which focus on Sotatsu's career: his beginnings as a painter of fans, his relationship with the calligrapher Koetsu (which produced breathtakingly beautiful scrolls), the origins of the artist's seal grass and flower paintings, and the iconography of the dynamic, large-scale screens that characterize his major work for illustrious Edo patrons. A final chapter focuses on the artist's influence in the 20th century. The magnificent screen Waves at Matsushima, painted early in 1600 and acquired in 1906 by Charles Lang Freer, is one of the highlights of the exhibition. The catalogue, with four double fold-out pages of the large-scale screens, rich with color and meticulously documented, is the state-of-the-art research on Sotatsu. With an exhaustive bibliography and an invaluable glossary, this book is essential for scholars, students, and connoisseurs of Japanese art.
