An icon of the Japanese ukiyo-e tradition, Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) used his talents as an artist to capture both the fantasy and the reality of the Japanese landscape. Now you can explore the majesty of these various vistas in Hiroshige, available on Musebooks.

Written by Mikhail Uspensky, former curator of Japanese art at the State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, this volume examines Hiroghige’s body of work both for its technical brilliance and for the imagination it encourages. Spectacular images of some of the artist’s most iconic works are showcased alongside Uspensky’s clearly articulated prose to create a volume that is ideal for both a preliminary introduction and deeper insights into Hiroshige’s body of work.
