Published in conjunction with the exhibition 'The New Japanese Painting and Sculpture' which toured the United States from 1965–1967. 'Until very recently, Western awareness of the art of Japan has been restricted to traditional Japanese arts and architecture. In the past few years, however, representations of Japanese art in the biennials in Venice and São Paolo, as well as in the Carnegie and Guggenheim Internationals, have shown some of the remarkable developments in Japanese painting and sculpture in the last decade. "The New Japanese Painting and Sculpture" is the largest exhibition of contemporary Japanese art so far presented in the United States.' - from the Foreword and Acknowledgments

The present exhibition and accompanying catalogue features works by 46 artists. Brief artist biographies are included. With an introductory essay by Willam S. Lieberman.
