Once slighted as mere copying from China, the arts of Japan are now seen as a unique alternation of advances and withdrawals. At times the islanders produced Chinese-style works of great beauty, unmatched on the continent. When they chose to be independent, their art differs at every level. Sculpture, and even more painting, are concrete, sensuous, and emotional, speaking directly to all.

Quite detailed. I was looking for something a little simpler, but was happy to just browse through the pictures. The architecture chapter is extremely interesting, but very technical.
