A Taschen book, disjointed with sketchy essays Photos are rudimentary without much definition.
Pretty good introduction to the historical timeline of Hiroshige s major works The book has very high color photos of his works and tries to compare the current events of the time with the work he developed My favorite chapter was the last chapter in which the author displays the influence Hiroshige had on European artists in the late 1880s This is certainly a book worth reading if you are interested in Japanese Woodblock Prints.
An amazing albeit short book about the artist Hiroshige s woodblock prints Remarkable artistry of the 1820s 1830s of such small detail, but so much can be seen It is fascinating to see these collections and how much he and others like him influenced European painters The prints you would think must be fragile all these years later but by the copies in this book must be quite sturdy The sly sense of humour, the author says dry , is the most wondrous, in that after reading up on the scenes before you see the pictures you think you know what to expect, but then when you turn the page to the pictures you are evenamazed All of it is in wonderful symmetry for if this was done in oil painting it would be hard to see the finer details and the depictions would be lost This book renews any interest in painting and artistry and I would be very interested to know if there is any courses in h Ukiyo e means, literally, Pictures of the floating transitory world As it is quite favourite form of artworks of mine, I greatly enjoyed every bit of this book.
