KITASONO Katue, et al. AMA NO MAYU. Tenmeisha, Showa 21 . 8vo, 18.4 x 13.0 cm. This slender wrappered pamphlet, containing work by Kitasono, Murano Shiro (1901-75) and Osada Tsuneo (1902-77), was published within months of the end of WWII, when Tokyo still lay in ruins. It is a remarkable testament to the durability of the Japanese artistic spirit. There is not space here to even begin to describe Kitasono's importance to world art and literature. I would refer you to the several works of John Solt, both translations and critical essays, as well as several exhibitions dedicated to Kitasono mounted here and in Europe, as well. Very good condition, complete as issued.
