Kyosai's Animal Circus (Hardback)Sadamura Koto (author of text)
A delightful menagerie of cats, frogs, elephants and many more creatures from the great nineteenth-century Japanese painter, Kyosai's Animal Circus combines quirky art with playful satire.
The Japanese artist Kawanabe Kyosai (1831-1889) delighted in the depiction of animals - crows with strong personalities, frogs in the schoolroom, rats on trapezes, catfish in procession, elephants performing tricks - and frequently used them to satirise contemporary society.
This enchanting book reveals a cavalcade of Kyosai's creatures from the renowned Israel Goldman Collection, with an introduction to the artist and his menagerie by Sadamura Koto, a leading authority on Kyosai.
