Tawaraya Sotatsu was a commoner who introduced traditional Japanese
themes and subjects, formerly the sole purview of the aristocracy,
to broader audiences. He painted these nationalistic images using a
bold, expressive new design style. This characteristic style was
further developed and enhanced when he founded the historic Rinpa
school with calligrapher Hon'ami Koetsu; Rinpa works are marked by
dramatic, stylized renderings of traditional Japanese themes.
Essays by leading scholars from the United States and Japan focus
on Sotatsu's well-known works; his collaboration with Koetsu; his
varied roles as shopkeeper, compiler and court painter; and his
influence over other artists, including Ogata Korin, Ogata Kenzan,
Sakai Hoitsu and Suzuki Kiitsu. The book also examines Freer
Gallery of Art founder Charles Lang Freer's role in introducing
Sotatsu and Koetsu to the Western world. Sotatsu is a must-have
book for museumgoers, Japanophiles, art lovers and scholars.
