The Way of the Brush: Painting Techniques of China and Japan examines the technique, style, traditions, and methods of Chinese ink painting and how they were interpreted in Japanese art. Illustrated with over 250 images and packed with instructions, The Way of the Brush covers every aspect of brush painting, from brushstrokes, composition and the painting surface to meaning, perspective and artistic philosophy. Part One is a study of the techniques of Chinese painting and explains the elements, techniques and principles which eventually carried over into Japanese painting. Part Two is devoted to technical challenges and basic problems associated with the art, including the issue of fakes and forgeries of Chinese art in Japan. Also included are three appendices and a full bibliography.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The most readable, the most authoritative, and the most comprehensive explanation of its kind to be published in many years. Indeed, it deservedly may be called unique." -Chicago Sunday Tribune
"Not only very thorough in matters of techniques, but unusually knowledgeable in regard to the subtle but supremely important philosophical ideas involved in design and composition." -San Francisco Sunday Chronicle
