内容説明

Amassed over more than thirty-five years, the Werdelmann Collection at the museum kunst palast D sseldorf is one of the most important netsuke collections in the world. It provides a unique survey of this Japanese art form created to adorn men's sashes, which was at its height between the late seventeenth and the early twentieth centuries. Comprising more than 1,000 objects, the Werdelmann Collection is remarkable for the inexhaustible diversity of motifs executed to the highest standards of the craft. The themes represented include alien beings and foreigners, Chinese and Buddhist figures, the various states and professions, scenes from everyday life, children, mythical creatures, flora and fauna and masks. Each piece is illustrated in brilliant colour illustrations and extensively described, incorporating the most recent netsuke research. An impressive publication, this book is bound to become a sought-after reference for collectors, connoisseurs and aficionados of netsuke. Text in English.
