The Ideals of the East, with Special Reference to the Art of Japan
by Kakuzo Okakura
This is a short but very concise introduction to Asian art by the author of ‘The Book of Tea.’ (- Already uploaded.) Written from a Japanese perspective, and focusing on Japanese art, one of the major themes is the relationship between spirituality, particularly Buddhism, and the evolution of Asian art.
