From "Acknowledgments," by H. Nichols B. Clark:
"The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art is honored to host the first major exhibition of Mitsumasa Anno in America. Anno's art is an intriguing interplay of Western and Asian aesthetic principles. In works for such books as Topsy-Turvies and Upside-Downers or his independent art, one encounters myriad art-historical references ranging from M.C. Escher and Jacob van Ruisdael to Leonardo da Vinci. In The Tale of the Heike, of course, Anno pays homage to the venerable tradition of Japanese scroll painting. Anno is omnivorous in his visual appetite, yet there is always a subtlety and grace-and, yes, wit-embedded in his work."
