Item description for Netsuke Vol II Four Centuries of Masterpieces: The Four Centuries of Masterpieces--The Trump Collection by Patrizia Jirka-Schmitz...

Worn by Japanese men as sash toggles, netsuke were attracting the attenrion of Europeans by the late 19th century. Today these delightful art objects are coveted by collectors throughout the world. Netsuke motifs can be mythical beings and creatures, vernacular deities, zodiac animals, seemed exotic tot he Jpanese of the Edo and Meiji eras, as well as Dutchmen and other Europeans. Consummate mastery of the carver's craft in a variety of materials, among them boxwood, ivory, horn, hornbill, coral, tortoiseshell and lacquer, distinguishes these miniature works of art. The masterpieces created by famous carvers like Yoshimura Shuzan (1700-1773) and Ohara Mitsuhiro (1810-1878) shaped aesthetic developments in this art medium.

Reviews - What do customers think about Netsuke Vol II Four Centuries of Masterpieces: The Four Centuries of Masterpieces--The Trump Collection?

Great pics, awesome shipping time, but.....  Nov 30, 2007
I recently ordered this book for a friend (had it shipped to him) and I was amazed that it arrived in less than a week ( and this is Dec 1st and a Canadian address to boot). The book has great pics, but my friend is an artistic carver and likes to read about the artform since its historical. Seems simple enough.... the problem is that the BOOK IS IN GERMAN!!! Please, please, this site, indicate in the books description if its in another language. PS. Because the swine opened it(ordered wrapped) before xmas, hes being punished by the gift gods and will now have to go online to translate the German to English, so Im not heart broken over it. LOL Trent
