16 Cline, Jeffery and William Knospe. [Kagedo Japanese Art]. Breaking Light: Arts of 20th Century Japan.
Kagedo, Inc., 2007. 
Folio, blind stamped black cloth (hardcover), 317 pp. Full-color illus. plates. From Foreword: Reimei (Breaking Light) explores the 20th century arts of Japan. We follow an idiosyncratic path and wind along byways we find interesting and beautiful. The artwork offered includes painting, ceramics, metalwork, lacquers, cloisonne enamels, bamboo art, wood carving and sculpture. All of the pieces were selected for their superior quality. All speak with a clear voice. Japan experienced great change and upheaval in the 20th century. The clouds of war and natural disasters played their part in breaking old patterrns, but the transition to modernity was well underway before 1900. By the first years of the century, cross-cultural currents eddied between Japan and the West continually and impelled great creativity in the arts. Many arists openly questioned what it meant to be both Japanese and modern, and the debate inspired a remarkable cultural flowering. Much artwork from the first decades of the century explores imagery from nature.....

17 Cline, Jeffrey and William Knospe. Light through Clouds.
Seattle, WA: Kagedo Japanese Art, 2005. 
Folio, blind-stamped black cloth (hardcover), 229 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. Illustrated with full-color plates. From Foreword: Despite the clouds of war, polotical upheaval and social change, the first four and a half decades of the 20th century saw an unprecedented flowering of Japanese painting. The opening of Japan to the West during the preceding years brought many Japanese artists to study in Europe and North America. In addition the founding of the Tokyo School of Fine Arts provided a forum for the study of both Western and Japanese Art. Before this period students followed in the path of the teachers under whom they apprenticed. By the turn of the 20th century young artists were exposed to stylistic and technical inspiration from a broad range of painting schools and traditions. These painters began to define a new type of Japanese painting, using traditional techniques to express a modern view of the world. They defined their art in opposition to Yoga or Western Style Painting. Currents of cross-cultural influence of course eddied back and forth between Japan and the West, inevitably insipring further innovation in both traditions. At the same time the number of public art exhibitions in Japan grew at an extraordinary pace, encouraging competition and individual creativity as never before seen in the Japanese art world.

20 Craven, Roy C. Indian Art. A Concise History.
London: Thames and Hudson Ltd., [1986]. 
Octavo, softbound, 252 pp. Fine. “The grave, sensuous and infinitely varied arts of India have long been admired in the West...Professor Craven tells the story clearly and vividly from the first, still mysterious beginnings in the Indus valley, through the great masterpieces of Buddhist and Hindu art to the coming of Islam, the eclectic culture of the Mughal court and the golden age of Indian miniature painting. Much of this art is immediately accessible to the outsider, but much is aslo enigmatic, needing interpretation and guidance before it can be enjoyed in depth: the strange pantheon of the Hindu gods, the subtle insights of Buddhist mysticism or the complex symbolism of the miniatures.
