Description
An exquisite showcase of woodblock prints by masters of Japan’s Edo period (1603-1867), from Hokusai and Hiroshige, to Kunisada, Kuniyoshi, Utamaro, and more. Richly illustrated with over 100 colour reproductions, an informative introductory chapter and image captions explores the development of woodblock prints as a Japanese art form and how the movement, known as, ‘ukiyo-e’, sought to capture ‘the floating world’ in their depictions of landscape, nature, fashionable society beauties and pleasure-seeking entertainments such as kabuki theatre and cultural pursuits. Includes ‘Small Bird on a Branch’, c.1833-38 by Utagawa Hiroshige; ‘Two Geisha at the Temple’, 1906-09, by Yamamoto Shoun; and ‘Red Fuji’, 1831, by Katsushika Hokusai. Handsomely presented on matte-finish paper, a compact introduction to discover the influential art form. This guide is an ideal gift for Japanese culture enthusiasts.
