The Mary Griggs Burke Collection of Japanese art is recognized as one of the most significant collections in private hands. This catalogue presents 168 of these masterpieces, dating from the protoliterate era (c.10000 BC) to the Edo period (1615-1868).From Library Journal:
Accompanying an exhibition of masterpieces from the Mary Griggs Burke collection, the largest and most encompassing private collection of Japanese art outside of Japan, this exhibition catalog showcases the finest works of the collection, dating from the proto-literate era (ca. 10,500 B.C.E.-ca. 300 B.C.E.) through the Edo period (1615-1868). Murase, a Columbia University professor and research curator at the Metropolitan Museum, advised Burke in her nearly four decades of collecting activities. Following a chronological organization, he explores and demonstrates the impact of Buddhism and Chinese literati painting on the formation of the Japanese artistic tradition. Extravagantly illustratedDmore than two thirds of the nearly 450 illustrations in colorDand supported by a glossary are a list of selected readings, this book lives up to Metropolitan Museum standard. This handsome volume will be a delightful addition to large art collections in academic and public libraries.DLucia S. Chen, NYPL
