The sculptures in American billionaire Larry Ellison's collection of Japanese art consist mostly of religious subjects spanning 1,000 years, from the 9th to 19th centuries. In contrast, the paintings, on screens and hanging scrolls, are mainly secular depictions of birds, flowers and animals, and scenes from classical literature. This exhibition catalogue from the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco also contains reproductions of lacquer, armour and metalwork and essays explaining the collection and the history of Japanese art.
