One of Japan s most renowned intellectuals, Motoori Norinaga (1730 1801) is perhaps best known for his notion of mono no aware, a detailed description of the workings of emotions as the precondition for the poetic act. As a poet and a theoretician of poetry, Norinaga had a keen eye for etymologies and other archaeological practices aimed at recovering the depth and richness of the Japanese language. This volume contains his major works on the Yamato region the heartland of Japanese culture including one of his most famous poetic diaries, The Sedge Hat Diary (Sugagasa no Nikki), translated into English here for the first time. Written in 1772 while Norinaga journeyed through Yamato and the Yoshino area, The Sedge Hat Diary was composed in the style of Heian prose and is interspersed with fifty-five poems. It offers important insights into Norinaga the poet, the scholar of ancient texts, the devout believer in Shinto deities, and the archaeologist searching for traces of ancient capitals, palaces, shrines, and imperial tombs of the pre-Nara period. In this piece Norinaga presents Yoshino as a common poetic space that readers must inhabit to develop the common sense that makes them live ethically in the poet s ideal society. Norinaga s ideal society is deeply imbued with the knowledge of poetry and the understanding of emotions as evidenced in the translation of Norinaga s twenty-six songs on aware (pathos) also included here. The rest of the volume offers translations of several essays by the poet that shed further light on the places he visited in Yoshino and on the main topic of his scholarly interests: the sound of the uta (songs) from his beloved Yamato. An introductory essay on Norinaga s poetics serves as a guide through the dense arguments he developed both practically in his poems and theoretically in his essays. "

The book is divided into 15 chapters, and as the title suggests, it is planned as a 15-days course wherein all the relevant aspects of drawing and painting have been explained in simple and lucid language with hundreds of illustrations and diagrams. The students while pursuing the course will gradually learn the importance of lines -- thin, thick, straight, dotted, curved, zigzag, horizontal, cross, slanting, etc. They will appreciate the role of shape, light, texture, balance, harmony, contrast, rhythm, tone, emphasis, span, colors, etc. They will develop a perspective and a point of view and will be able to distinguish between light and highlight, shade and shadow. The book, it is hoped, will be found useful by all those persons, young or old, professionals or amateurs, who have some taste, love for art and artistic creations.

David Hockney (b. 1937) is one of the most significant artists exploring and pushing the boundaries of figurative art today. Hockney has been engaged with portraiture since his teenage years, when he painted Portrait of My Father (1955), and his self-portraits and depictions of family, lovers, and friends represent an intimate visual diary of the artist’s life. This beautifully illustrated book examines Hockney’s portraits in all media—painting, drawing, photography, and prints—and has been produced in close collaboration with the artist. Featured subjects include members of Hockney’s family and private circle, as well as portraits of such artists and cultural figures as Lucian Freud, Francesco Clemente, R. B. Kitaj, Helmet Newton, Lawrence Weschler, and W. H. Auden. The authors reveal how Hockney’s creative development and concerns about representation can be traced through his portrait work: from his battle with naturalism to his experimentation with and later rejection of photography, and from his recent camera lucida drawings to his return to painting from life. Featuring more than 250 works from the past fifty years, David Hockney Portraits illustrates not only the fascinating range of Hockney’s creative practice but also the unique and cyclical nature of his artistic concerns.
