Ernest Francisco Fenollosa: Published Writings in English is the very first collection of almost all of the writings of Ernest Fenollosa, `Father of Japanese Art', published in his lifetime.To commemorate the 100th anniversary of his death, 51 articles from journals, newspapers, pamphlets, exhibition catalogues, and booklets which the editor collected for many years are reprinted in facsimile, together with many plates (some in colour).The editor's detailed introduction (both in English and Japanese) includes a chronological record of Fenollosa's life, and his wife Mary's writings on Ukiyoe are added.
Ernest Francisco Fenollosa: Published Writings in English is an indispensable primary source for any scholars and students on the history of Japanese art and the cultural exchange between Japan and the West in Meiji Japan.
