Saiso Shimada - monograph
The World of Saiso Shimada
This magnificent large format (303 x 215 mm)
hardback volume, published in 2017,
contains superb reproductions of well over thirty
works by the artist - most being recent
and a good number included in her exhibition
in the summer of the same year in Paris.
In his foreword, Aleksey Bogolyubov, Curator at The Hermitage Museum, writes:
"Saiso Shimada ... has succeeded in taking calligraphy to new dimensions as an art form
with her exquisite balance of Japanese tradition and her own keen, unique sensibilities."
