HILLIER, J. - Utamaro  Colour Prints and Paintings

Title: Utamaro Colour Prints and Paintings
Description: Phaidon Press Ltd., London, 1961. First edition. Quarto printed cloth, 161pp, 110 illustrations & 17 tipped colour plates. A few spots on endpapers and pastedowns with some light toning and faint spotting to text block edges; dustwrapper chipped at spine extremities and corners. Very good to near fine and professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Utamaro is one of the most significant figures in the history of Japanese art, and one who has had an incalculable influence of western artists. The author of this study for many years devoted to a study of Japanese artists, especially of Utmaro. Aided by a generous selection of typical prints, in broadsheet or album form, he traces Utamaro's development as an artist, providing at the same time an approach to the Japanese way of life in the late eighteenth century, as well as to some of the problems of Japanese art generally.
