Não conhecia Hiroshige até ano passado e fiquei absolutamente hipnotizada por suas pinturas. Eu me interesso por pintura japonesa, que conheci primeiramente pela influência que as estampas tiveram em artistas como Monet e Klimt. Nunca tinha visto alguém usar cores desse jeito. ( )

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.
