Hiroshige. One Hundred Famous Views

Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) was a prominent artist in the ukiyo-e tradition, known for his vivid depictions of Japan's "floating world." This genre, popular between the 17th and 19th centuries, depicted scenes of hedonism and city life in Edo (modern-day Tokyo), including beautiful women, actors, and landscapes. Hiroshige's renowned series "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo" (1856-1858) showcased the city's diverse scenes throughout the seasons, from bustling streets to cherry orchards.

This reprint, bound in traditional Japanese style, features 120 illustrations from one of the finest original sets of woodblock prints housed in the Ota Memorial Museum of Art in Tokyo. Each illustration is accompanied by a description, providing readers with an immersive experience of Hiroshige's vibrant vistas. These artworks, emblematic of Japonisme, inspired artists such as Vincent van Gogh and James McNeill Whistler, influencing movements like Impressionism and Art Nouveau.
