This vintage book contains a detailed introduction to Japanese art, with historical information, directions for using materials, details on influential artists and pieces, and much more. "On The Laws Of Japanese Painting" constitutes a must-read for those with a practical interest in Japanese art and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "Personal Experiences", "Art in Japan", "Laws for the Use of Brush and Materials", "Laws Governing the Conception and Execution of a Painting", "Canons of the Aesthetics of Japanese Painting", "Subjects for Japanese Painting", "Signatures and Seals", "Explanation of Head-Bands", and "Plates Explanatory of the Forgoing Text on the Laws of Japanese Painting". Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction. This book was first published in 1911.
