Kokusai The Genius: And Stag-Antler Carving In Japan 3

The first comprehensive publication on the prodigious and extraordinary Japanese netsuke carver Kokusai (1835-1894). A milestone in netsuke scholarship: 258 generously illustrated entries make this the largest single assemblage of Kokusai's work, which, combined with information on the artist's colorful life, provide a fascinating insight into 19th-century Japan. Kokusai lived in a time of immense social, cultural and artistic change, and his work — and indeed his own person — captures its contradictions.
