Chapter 4 – Artists, Editors and Publishers

 

4.1   Information about Artists, Editors and Publishers A-K

 

To address the question ‘who is the artist and when was the picture drawn?’, this chapter provides some information about each of 487 artists, book editors and publishers who produced flower-bird pictures.

 

   As a minimum, an individual’s first name, period of activity and stylistic school are given along with titles of any books authored or contributed to and the number of pictures included in this analysis. Additional information may include surname, dates of birth and death, signature and seal.

 

   There are a number of reasons why information as basic as surname is additional. First, some artists are known only from their name on a few pictures and this name is a first name rather than a surname. Second, artists often used an art-name instead of their true name. Third, publishers occasionally created imaginary artists to sell unauthorized copies of an artist’s work. Fourth, there is no comprehensive who’s-who book of Japanese printmakers. In Japan, art historians have paid less attention to documenting the life and work of printmakers than of painters because, until recently, printmaking was seen as strictly a commercial art whose products were inferior to those of painters and, therefore, less worth documenting. Starting in the late 1800s European and North American interest in Japanese prints encouraged historians to consider prints more seriously and to include printmakers in reference books about Japanese art. Books listed in section 6.1.12 of the Bibliography are a good starting point in a search for biographical information about flower-bird artists. These books are the primary source of biographic information presented below.

 

   Artists, editors and publishers are listed alphabetically below and by Kangxi radical number in Appendix 2. To see an example of an artist’s work, click on the word “picture”.
