Summary

Stars of the Tokyo stage celebrates the glamour of kabuki theatre amid the dynamic atmosphere of Japan in the 1920s and 30s. Drawn from the collection of the National Gallery of Australia, Natori Shunsen's superb woodblock portraits of the superstar actors of the time are exquisitely reproduced and discussed in detail, alongside a selection of spectacular costumes from the kabuki stage. Stars of the Tokyo Stage brings together essays by experts in the fields of kabuki, printmaking and modern Japan. It is an entertaining and valuable resource for anyone with an interest in Japanese art, culture and theatre.
