Extending Enlightenment: Buddhist Art of Meiji and Edo Japan

While a significant amount of scholarship exists about Japanese Buddhist art prior to 1615 and about ‘secular’ Japanese art after 1615, resources—especially those outside Japan—discussing Japanese Buddhist art after 1615 are scarce. This article, along with the author’s forthcoming publication Beyond Zen: Japanese Buddhist Baroque, seeks to address this privileging of earlier Japanese Buddhist art by discussing the vibrant, ornate and luxurious works that certainly continued in the patronage of Buddhism in Japan in both the Edo and Meiji periods. Ten works are featured as significant exemplars of this florescence.
