This book provides an introduction to Utagawa Hiroshige's work and an overview of his career.
Skillfully reprinted in rich, lovely colors from a rare and costly edition, these 120 plates feature realistic images of poppies, daffodils, tulips, and other familiar and unusual flowers.
Among the thirty-two woodcuts in this calendar are selections from the artists' most prized series, such as Hiroshige's One Hundred Famous Views of Edo and Hokusai's Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji.
Japanese beautiful women, decorative kimono and flowers of the seasons - Beauties for the Four Seasons comprises Japanese woodblock prints (Ukiyo-e) from the Ashmolean Museum.
This volume includes full-color reproductions of drawings and woodblock prints by Japan's most beloved artist.
Ukiyo was a state of mind as well as a world of pleasure-seeking, promising release from the restraints imposed on urban life in a highly regulated society.
