One Hundred Famous Views of Edo

Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858) was one of the last great artists in the ukiyo-e tradition which came to typify the Western world’s visual idea of Japan. Literally meaning "pictures of the floating world," ukiyo-e was a particular genre of art that flourished between the 17th and 19th centuries and came to characterise the Western world's visual idea of Japan. This book gathers together woodblock prints of his masterpiece series known as "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo" (1856-1858), depicting the city through the seasons, bustling streets and splendid cherry orchards. This reprint pairs each of the 120 illustrations with a description, allowing readers to immerse themselves in these beautiful, vibrant vistas that became paradigms of Japonisme and inspired Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Art Nouveau artists alike, from Vincent van Gogh to James McNeill Whistler.

Hardback, 573 pages.
