Orient expressed: The master of Japanese ukiyo-e   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 was a particular woodblock print genre of art that flourished between the 17th and 19th centuries. Subjects ranged from the bright lights and attractions of Edo (modern-day Tokyo), to spectacular natural landscapes.

In the West, Hiroshige’s prints became exemplary of the Japonisme that swept through Europe and defined the Western world’s visual idea of Japan. Because they could be mass produced, ukiyo-e works were often used as designs for fans, greeting cards, and book illustrations. The style influenced Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Art Nouveau artists alike, with Vincent van Gogh and James McNeill Whistler both particularly inspired by Hiroshige’s landscapes.

This introductory book presents key images from Hiroshige's vibrant, vivd portfolio of blooming cherry trees, beautiful women, kabuki actors, and busy shopping streets to introduce one of the greats of Asian art history.   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
