By Stephen Addiss and John Daido Loori. When a Zen
master puts brush to paper, the image is an expression of the
quality of his or her mind. It is thus a teaching, intended to
stop us in our tracks to consider ultimate truth. Here, forty
masterpieces of painting and calligraphy by renowned
masters are reproduced along with illuminating commentary.
The authors’ essays provide an introduction to both the
aesthetic and teaching aspects of this art that can be
profound, perplexing, humorous, and breathtakingly
beautiful. 128pp., pb.
