Detalles del producto

Edición en inglés.
Japanese printmaking was one of Van Gogh's main sources of inspiration and he became an enthusiastic collector. The prints acted as a catalyst: they taught him a new way of looking at the world.

Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) was the most prolific and diverse artist of Japan's Edo period, with a body of work reputed to include more than 30,000 drawings, paintings and prints. Hokusai became one of the great masters of the woodcut, this 'brush gone wild', as he called himself, being rediscovered by the Impressionists and aesthetes at the end of the nineteenth century.

His works range from portraits of popular actors and courtesans to landscapes and seascapes, including his celebrated 'Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji', and from cleverly observed scenes of everyday life to the erotic prints known as shunga. While his prints had a huge influence on the course of Western art, it is equally true that he himself was influenced by European painting, embracing techniques such as perspective and adapting them to suit Japanese tastes. He remains one of the greatest and - thanks to his personality - one of the most attractive figures of world art.


Edición en inglés. Hardcover, 224 pages. A beautifully illustrated introduction to Katsushika Hokusai, the most prolific artist of Japan's Edo period, and master of ukiyo-e - 'images of the floating world'.
