      Hiroshige (–) was one of the last great artists in the ukiyo-e tradition. Though he captured a variety of subjects, his greatest talent was in creating landscapes of his native Edo (modern-day Tokyo) and his final masterpiece was a series known as “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo” (–). This resplendent complete reprint Category: Books > Art. Hiroshige is best known for his horizontal-format landscape series The Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō and for his vertical-format landscape series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo. The subjects of his work were atypical of the ukiyo-e genre, whose typical focus was on beautiful women, popular actors, and other scenes of the urban pleasure districts of Japan's Edo period Education: Toyohiro.

        The art of the Ukiyo-e reflected the artistic expression of an isolated civilisation which, when it became accessible to the West, significantly influenced a number of European artists. The three masters of Ukiyo-e, Hokusai, Utamaro and Hiroshige, are united here for the first time to create a true reference on Japanese art. The three masters rank highly among the most famous Japanese . The book itself is a Japanese stab binding, with a silk cover. The images within it are wonderful, and are reproduced to the highest quality; and the commentary is fascinating and well read. Whether you are a fan of Hiroshige, Japanese art, Japanese culture or beautiful books, you should try to get your hands on a copy of this/5.

      However, it is also a quest narrative, in which landscapes and notions of Japan as a homeland are intertwined and interconnected. Although there has never been a book-length study of the Japanese landscape print in either Japanese or English, a great deal has been written about the two giants of the genre, Hokusai and Hiroshige.   A comprehensive monograph on Hiroshige, the last great master of the ukiyo-e style, with more than reproductions. This substantial volume offers a broad panorama of the hugely popular oeuvre of Hiroshige (–), the great artist of the Japanese popular school of printmaking who transmuted everyday landscapes into intimate, lyrical scenes.
