A Much Recorded War

Author Frederic Alan Sharf, Anne Nishimura Morse, Sebastian Dobson
Publisher Museum of Fine Arts Boston
Publication Date 2005-01
Section All Remainders / History
Type New
ISBN 9780878466917.RM

A Much Recorded War examines the Russo-Japanese conflict from the viewpoint of its artistic legacy, exploring the ways in which it was represented, promoted, and mythologized. Presenting over eighty objects - from woodblock prints, lithographs, watercolors, and photographs to film, postcards, and even garments - the book discusses the origins and history of the war, the development of its imagery in Japanese art, and the ground-breaking role of photography and newsreels. Published to mark the hundredth anniversary of the Portsmouth Treaty, which ended the war, this is both a remarkable work of historical scholarship and a brilliant compendium of graphic art.
