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 artistic productions of all time. This new title of the Prestige of Art collection will be a reference for art students and Japanese art lovers.

Born in the shogun's capital of Edo (now Tokyo), Hiroshige lost his parents at a young age. Even so, he relinquished the security

Hiroshige's Edo: Master of Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints "Some of the greatest prints in the history of art." -The Wall Street Journal, New York Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) was one of the last great artists in the ukiyo-e tradition. Literally meaning "pictures of the floating world", ukiyo-e refers to the famous Japanese woodblock print genre that originated in the 17th century and is practically synonymous with the Western world`s visual characterization of Japan. Though Hiroshige captured a variety of subjects, his greatest talent was in creating landscapes of his native Edo (modern-day Tokyo) and his most famous work was a series known as "100 Famous Views of Edo" (1856-1858). This book provides an introduction to his work and an overview of his career. About the Series: Each book in TASCHEN's Basic Art series features: a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist, covering his or her cultural and historical importance a concise biography approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions

"These pencil, ink, and watercolor drawings by the great Japanese master Hiroshige Ando (1797-1858) were made when he was at the height of his talent and popularity. Rarely circulated or seen, the drawings, which appear in two sketchbooks, range from everyday scenes of a worker in a rice field stopping to smoke or fishing boats at work, to episodes of classic Japanese folklore and fantasy. The colors are fresh, the renderings fluid, and the use of space astonishing. With just a few brushstrokes, Hiroshige creates scenes of enduring elegance. As Daniel Boorstin states in his foreword, "No study of art history or chronology is needed to enjoy the shock and revelation of the blank page transformed." Even those unacquainted with Japanese art will be enchanted by their delicate beauty." "Hiroshige executed these drawings around 1840 while traveling in Japan; they are now in the Crosby Stuart Noyes Collection in the Library of Congress. This one-volume edition has been printed in Japan to ensure the utmost care in reproducing the subtle nuances of Hiroshige's masterpieces, which are reproduced to size and in their original sequence."--Jacket.

Hiroshige Shaping the Image of Japan is a comprehensive overview of Hiroshige's work as a woodblock print artist. Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) is one of the great masters in the history of Japanese printmaking and this publication coincides with the 150th anniversary of his death. Hiroshige has worked in virtually every genre of ukiyo-e or 'images of the floating world'. He designed prints of beautiful women and brave heroes, but achieved his greatest fame through his depictions of the Japanese landscape, showing famous places in different seasons and at various times of day. These landscape prints, with their bright colors and strong compositions, were not only popular in Japan, but also found favor with European artists at the turn of the 19th century. The main body of this publication includes a general introduction, sketching the cultural and economic environment of the artist Hiroshige, the development of his oeuvre, and the rise of his his artistic reputation in Japan and the West. This is followed by a chronological presentation of 140 full-color prints, selected from public and private collections. Biographical data are sparse and only very few details of his life help explain the nature of his output. However, by carefully piecing together the information which can be gleaned from the works themselves, and combining it with the current knowledge on print production methods, the authors present a picture of Hiroshige as an artist-cum-craftsman who efficiently produced for his publishers, creating in the process an image of Japan which endures until this day.
