Utagawa Hiroshigewas one of the last great artists in the ukiyo e tradition Literally meaning pictures of the floating world ukiyo e refers to the famous Japanese woodblock print genre that originated in the th century and is practically synonymous with the Western worlds visual characteriza. 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 uite sturdy The sly sense of humour the author says dry is the most wondrous in that after reading up on the scenes before you see the pictures you think you know what to expect but then when you turn the page to the pictures you are even amazed All of it is in wonderful symmetry for if this was done in oil painting it would be hard to see the finer details and the depictions would be lost This book renews any interest in painting and artistry and I would be very interested to know if there is any courses in high school or university in the works of Japanese woodblock prints or any independent study can be made of woodblock prints I should like to be a student in this Art
