Guthrie, Christine. Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers. New York. 1996. Paperback.
Here we find many of Japan's most popular artists - the great painters and woodblock printmakers Korin, Utamaro, and Hiroshige, among others - and discover some that may be new to us. All are seen in the context of the cities in which they worked, whose rivalries, energies, and achievements produced an extraodinarily vital and innovative art.
