beschrijving











- A comprehensive introduction to the hugely popular Japanese school of ukiyo-e
- The art of ukiyo-e (paintings of the floating world) originated in the city of Edo (1603-1867, now Tokyo) and reflects not only the contemporary passion for theatre, restaurants, teahouses and geisha, but also Japan's deep love of nature and tradition
- With contributions by Western and Japanese scholars, this book provides a fascinating and scholarly study of such masters as Hokusai, Hiroshige and Utamaro
- Includes over 600 works depicting subjects from kabuki actors and tales of courtship to landscapes and erotica
- An excellent resource for scholars and an easily accessible starting point for general readers
