From the Kodansha Library of Japanese Art, Sesshu features 61 plates - 8 in full color- of artwork by the artist Sesshu. Sesshu was considered by most Japanese to be the greatest single figure in their long history of painting. He was known for his landscape painting in black ink, finding in nature the perfect aesthetic expression of the spirit of Zen Buddhism. The full breadth of the man and the surpassing glory of his art are well set forth here in a carefully chosen selection of his work, made by Mr. Tanio Nakamura, of the Tokyo National Museum, and a beautifully written text by Mrs. Elise Grilli, art critic for the "Japan Times."
