Kyosai's Animal Circus, Hardback Book

Kyosai's Animal Circus Hardback



The Japanese artist Kawanabe Kyosai (1831-1889) delighted in the depiction of animals - crows with strong personalities, frogs in the schoolroom, rats on trapezes, catfish in procession, elephants performing tricks - and frequently used them to satirise contemporary society.

This enchanting book reveals a cavalcade of Kyosai's creatures from the renowned Israel Goldman Collection, with an introduction to the artist and his menagerie by Sadamura Koto, a leading authority on Kyosai.
