Excerpt

For the Japanese-language edition of this book Professor Ichimatsu Tanaka provided an excellent text with a summation of the recent work of Japanese scholars on Sotatsu (see Bibliography on page 86). Though the present book contains the same selection and arrangement of plates as originally made by Professor Tanaka, with his approval I have written an entirely new text and captions from the viewpoint of the Western reader rather than the Japanese reader he was addressing. I have tried to separate Sotatsu from the other men with whom his work has been confused and also to indicate his importance in the formation of a specifically Japanese decorative style. More could not be attempted in the modest confines of this small volume.
