About This Item

Takashi Murakami’s irreverent, pop culture–infused art has made him one of the most recognized Japanese artists today. His bright, contemporary boisterousness, however, belies his deep scholarship and engagement with traditional Japanese art. Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics presents key examples of Murakami’s work alongside a rich selection of Japanese masterpieces spanning several centuries and arranged here according to concepts laid out by his mentor and foil, leading Japanese art historian Nobuo Tsuji. Beautifully illustrated with Tsuji’s selections from the preeminent Japanese art collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, as well as some of Murakami’s best known works of painting and sculpture, the combination of old and new in this groundbreaking volume enriches our understanding of each, and ultimately shows us how contemporary art can be seen as part of a continuum or lineage.

Anne Nishimura Morse is William and Helen Pounds Senior Curator of Japanese Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Nobuo Tsuji is Professor Emeritus at the University of Tokyo and the former director of the Miho Museum in Japan.
