Hiroshige 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
dr_zirk on LibraryThing 5 months ago
This is a great brief introduction to the life and works of Hiroshige. The presentation is unusual, in that it consists of a series of short essays that are not directly linked to each other. Nonetheless, the cumulative weight of both the words and images included in this volume gives the reader a great overview of who Hiroshige was and what he accomplished with his stellar color prints of Japanese landscapes and people.
