"Explores the 17th-century consolidation of Japanese painting style by the Kano artistic house, based on knowledge brought back from China by the monk-painter Sessh''u and intertwined with native Japanese practices. Presents key factors in establishing the orthodoxy of the Kano painters and their role in defining Japanese painting."--Publisher''s description.
From the Publisher:
In this eloquent and far-ranging work, Yukio Lippit explores the seventeenth-century consolidation of Japanese painting by the famed Kano painting house, whose style evolved from the legacy of Zen monk-painters of the medieval era and intertwined Chinese with native Japanese practices. Legitimacy was transmitted from master to disciple in a manner similar to that in religious traditions. Lippit illuminates the role of key factors--bequeathal of artworks, authentication of art, painting in the mode of famous masters, collections of art, and the use of art in governance--in establishing the orthodoxy of the Kano painters and their paramount role in defining Japanese painting.

Painting of the Realm is pathbreaking in its analysis of the discursive operations of the Kano school and its posing of large questions about painting that exceed narrow artist-centered, formalist analysis. Lippit has undertaken a bold and dense study of painting production and reception, presenting original and compelling interpretations.

Yukio Lippit is Harris K. Weston Professor of the Humanities

at Harvard University.
