Wenn das Land der aufgehenden Sonne in einem der häufigen Erdbeben für immer im Meer versinken sollte, würde es durch den magischen Pinsel Hiroshiges für uns dennoch fortleben. Wenn wir seine Landschaften betrachten, trägt uns unsere Fantasie in ein Land der Regenschauer und der Sonnenuntergänge, in ein Märchenreich, in dem in tausend Prismen zerborstene Regenbogen auf die Erde fallen und in dem Wasser sanft in Richtung Horizont fließt. Hiroshige gilt als der letzte große Meister der Kunst des Ukiyo-e. Er setzte die Üppigkeit der Farben ein, um dem Betrachter in seinen sorgfältigen Abbildungen berühmter Orte eine glänzende Vision Japans zu präsentieren.

This work presents colour reproductions, details and full explanations of the masterpieces that crown the work of one of the greatest ukiyo-e artists, Ando Hiroshige. The last great master of the Japanese woodblock was Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858). In the Japan of his day, Hiroshige's landscape prints fostered a new and far-reaching appreciation for nature in art. In the West, his work influenced such artists as Whistler, Cezanne, and Gauguin. Born in the shogun's capital of Edo (now Tokyo), Hiroshige lost his parents at a young age. Even so, he relinquished the security

This lavishly produced authoritative monograph presents an in-depth view of the life and work of Utagawa Hiroshige, one of Japan's most revered artists. Presented in a style as stunning as the prints it celebrates, this survey of Hiroshige tells the fascinating story of the last great practitioner of ukiyo-e, or "pictures of the floating world." Hiroshige is considered to be the tradition's most poetic artist and his work had a marked influence on Western painting towards the end of the 19th century. Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Paul C�zanne, and James Whistler were inspired by Hiroshige's serene depictions of the natural world. Arranged chronologically, this book illustrates through text and magnificent reproductions Hiroshige's youth and early career; his artistic development in the genre of landscape prints; his depictions of Edo and the provinces; the flower and bird prints; and his many popular books and paintings. It discusses the historic and cultural environment in which Hiroshige flourished and the many reasons his art continues to be revered and imitated. Filled with 300 color reproductions, and featuring a clamshell box and Japanese-style binding, this volume is destined to become the definitive examination of Hiroshige's oeuvre.

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

The Moon Reflected : Later Woodblock Prints from the British Museum

This exhibition, curated by renowned British artist Julian Opie, consisted of woodblock prints by 19th century Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige. An intervention in Ikon's normal sequence of contemporary exhibitions, it demonstrated the relevance of historical work to current artistic practice, and provided another look at printmaking which is an important part of the gallery's programme. The Moon Reflected was the result of Opie's longstanding interest in Hiroshige. Rather than being an exercise in contemporary/historical mix-and-match, it couldn't have been more serious and personal from the British artist's point of view. His preference for Hiroshige's later work is significant as it tends to be broader in style and less narrative, thus accentuating more aesthetic concerns. Born in Tokyo in 1797, Hiroshige studied printmaking and painting, becoming an illustrator of comic poetry and story books. This exhibition featured three series as well as a number of the artist's sketchbooks and the famous Snow, Moon and Flowers triptychs. Beautiful and unpretentious, these works, assembled from three separate prints, epitomise Hiroshige's vision, extraordinary for their breadth and ambition. This fully illustrated publication contains an interview between acclaimed British artist Julian Opie and Timothy Clark of the Japanese Section, The British Museum. Published on the occasion of the exhibition Utagawa Hiroshige: The Moon Reflected at Ikon Gallery, November 2007 - January 2008.
