      Lovely little book on a fascinating artist. Taschen have done a great job, producing an affordable book that includes a lot of Hiroshige's works, all in colour, accompanied by an excellent text. You can lose yourself in Hiroshige's works. You can also see the influence Hiroshige has had on manga and anime, not to mention Tintin. A short, introductory work and one that is very good.

      An amazing albeit short book about the artist Hiroshige's woodblock prints. Remarkable artistry of the 1820s-1830s of such small detail, but so much can be seen. It is fascinating to see these collections and how much he and others like him influenced European painters. The prints you would think must be fragile all these years later but by the copies in this book must be quite sturdy. The sly sense of humour, the author says "dry", is the most wondrous, in that after reading up on the scenes be [...]

      Ukiyo-e means, literally, "Pictures of the floating transitory world". As it is quite favourite form of artworks of mine, I greatly enjoyed every bit of this book.

      I very much enjoyed reading about Hiroshige. His paintings are so visually stunning and it was amazing to see Vincent Van Gogh's copy too. Wood blocks are an amazing art form.

      Un libro de arte sobre un artista maravilloso. Los textos son comprensibles e interesantes, aunque hay ciertos errores a nivel de edición pero nada mortal.Hiroshige fue un artista muy prolífico y además sus técnicas y motivos inspiraron a muchos artistas occidentales como Van Gogh, Degas, Monet, entre otros (hechos que desconocía)Un libro muy ameno también si te interesa la historia y cultura de Japón.

      Lush colours, incredible depth and astonishing technique. Hiroshige was truly a visionary. Fantastic collection of his artwork. To think I picked up this little gem on a whim

      A Taschen book, disjointed with sketchy essays. Photos are rudimentary without much definition.

    8. Jon on said:

      Pretty good introduction to the historical timeline of Hiroshige's major works. The book has very high color photos of his works and tries to compare the current events of the time with the work he developed. My favorite chapter was the last chapter in which the author displays the influence Hiroshige had on European artists in the late 1880s. This is certainly a book worth reading if you are interested in Japanese Woodblock Prints.

      This is a great brief introduction to the life and works of Hiroshige. The presentation is unusual, in that it consists of a series of short essays that are not directly linked to each other. Nonetheless, the cumulative weight of both the words and images included in this volume gives the reader a great overview of who Hiroshige was and what he accomplished with his stellar color prints of Japanese landscapes and people.

      Hiroshige rules! This book is a great introduction to the Japanese woodblock artist from the 1800s. The commentary and interpretation on the prints is easy to understand and provides enough depth to get a real sense of the artistry involved. And all the prints are presented in full color.

    11. BookLady on said:

      Junto con Utagawa y Hokusai, Hiroshige es uno de mis favoritos. Hermosas estampas del artista de " la niebla, la nieve y la lluvia". Muy recomendable.

      Costed R$ 500(the minimum wage at the time) and I have never been happier to buy a book. Still my favorite!
