On Saturday, I celebrated my birthday with a visit to the Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture, and took along my wife and my father.

Capers With Carroll: Japanese Landscapes @ the Clark

I try to get this museum as often as their exhibitions change, and Near and Far: Landscapes by Japanese Artists. Rotation 1: Imagination of Nature closes December 22. Its companion, Near and Far: Landscapes by Japanese Artists. Rotation 2: Idealization of Reality, opens January 6. We arrived just a few minutes past 1:00 pm on Saturday, just a little late to catch the beginning of the weekly docent tour. One of the oldest pieces, Mountains by a River, is attributed to Kenkō Shōkei (active about 1478-1506), a Zen priest who studied paintings from Song and Yuan China. As an example of the professional artists, the Kanō family ran an art school and served wealthy patrons, from the late 15th Century, until near the end of the 19th. Color and detail also attracted me to Komuro Suiun’s Mount Hōrai. The most dramatic piece is also the most recent (1984).

Craft In America / Nakashima, George and Mira

He attended the University of Washington and received his Masters in Architecture from M.I.T. During WWII, he was placed in an internment camp where he learned woodworking from a Japanese carpenter. In 1943 he opened up a woodworking shop and studio in New Hope, Pennsylvania and employed some of the world’s finest craftsmen. Today the Nakashima Studio is operated by his daughter, Mira Nakashima-Yarnall. Mira Nakashima-Yarnall Mira Nakashima-Yarnall (b. 1942, Seattle, WA) has followed her father’s path by becoming a woodworker.

Après Les Lettres familiales de Zheng Banqiao, j’avais en tête de rédiger un nouveau billet de ma nouvelle série « Indisponible » et de me plaindre de la disparition des rayonnages des librairies d'un autre de ces témoignages de la délicatesse des lettrés chinois de la dynastie Qing (1644-1911), savoir la traduction historique du Fusheng liuji 浮生六記 de Shen Fu 沈復 (1763-1825 ?)

Le retour de Shen Fu

Par Pierre Ryckmans. Or l’ouvrage, Six récits au fil inconstant des jours, dont l’absence se faisait cruellement sentir vient justement d’être réédité, et je suis donc heureux de vous annoncer le retour de Shen Fu. Ce retour est assuré par les éditions Jean-Claude Lattès. Il apporte quelques modifications notables par rapport aux tirages anciens. Outre un nouveau format qui le situe dans une communauté esthétique avec le précédent ouvrage de Simon Leys paru chez cet éditeur - Le bonheur des petits poissons dont j'avais parlé - , c'est le nom de Pierre Ryckmans qui a été effacé au profit de son célèbre pseudonyme.
