Product Description

Review

'There are stunningly beautiful pictures of actors and courtesans, prostitutes, landscapes and flowers... Degas borrowed from them, Van Gogh copied them, and almost every important European artist was influenced by them.' (The Sunday Times)

This huge book is a tremendous achievement in terms of bringing together a large body of material. It has contributions from a number of experts, with thematic essays. The quality of information is excellent, the only slight disadvantage being that text entries are separate from the illustrations.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wow, I didn't realise how large, thick and heavy this book would be until it arrived. Impressive! It offers excellent, detailed coverage of Japanese woodblock prints, including rarities seldom seen in books. It seems to stop at 1868, though, so doesn't include masters from the late 1800s or some of my personal favourite Japanese prints, Goyo's from 1915-1920.
