Old Taoist
Not available

In the literary and artistic milieu of early modern Japan the Chinese and Japanese arts flourished side by side. KodĂ´jin, the "Old Taoist" (1865-1944), was the last of these great poet-painters in Japan. Portraying this last representative of a tradition of gentle and refined artistry in the midst of a society that valued economic growth and national achievement, this beautifully illustrated book includes a wide selection of his finest poems, paintings, and calligraphy.
