161. [Blunden]. ‘Eastern Aesthetics’. Review of Legend in Japanese Art, by Henri Joly, and Brushwork of the Far East: Sumie Techniques, by Sademi Yamada. TLS, 16 November 1967, p. 1079.
Blunden’s last TLS review of a work about
Japan finds Joly’s work, first published in 1908, ‘a masterpiece
of its kind’, and offers words of praise for Yamada, ‘not
only a leading professor of art but an artist fortunate in vision’.
