Japan's Great Landscape Artist
Author: Isaburo Oka,Stanleigh H. Jones
Publisher: Kodansha USA Incorporated
This work presents colour reproductions, details and full explanations of the masterpieces that crown the work of one of the greatest ukiyo-e artists, Ando Hiroshige. The last great master of the Japanese woodblock was Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858). In the Japan of his day, Hiroshige's landscape prints fostered a new and far-reaching appreciation for nature in art. In the West, his work influenced such artists as Whistler, Cezanne, and Gauguin. Born in the shogun's capital of Edo (now Tokyo), Hiroshige lost his parents at a young age. Even so, he relinquished the security

This lavishly produced authoritative monograph presents an in-depth view of the life and work of Utagawa Hiroshige, one of Japan's most revered artists. Presented in a style as stunning as the prints it celebrates, this survey of Hiroshige tells the fascinating story of the last great practitioner of ukiyo-e, or "pictures of the floating world." Hiroshige is considered to be the tradition's most poetic artist and his work had a marked influence on Western painting towards the end of the 19th century. Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Paul C�zanne, and James Whistler were inspired by Hiroshige's serene depictions of the natural world. Arranged chronologically, this book illustrates through text and magnificent reproductions Hiroshige's youth and early career; his artistic development in the genre of landscape prints; his depictions of Edo and the provinces; the flower and bird prints; and his many popular books and paintings. It discusses the historic and cultural environment in which Hiroshige flourished and the many reasons his art continues to be revered and imitated. Filled with 300 color reproductions, and featuring a clamshell box and Japanese-style binding, this volume is destined to become the definitive examination of Hiroshige's oeuvre.

Forget the Ryder Cup, forget Rory McIlroy, forget keeping your head still and correcting your putting stance. Forget eagles and albatrosses and definitely forget holes-in-one. David Godwin has a dream, the same dream held by millions of amateur golfers. He's not aiming to break on to the pro circuit, he's not aiming to break par. David Godwin is going to break 80. Or it's going to break him. Written with humour and charm, Breaking 80 is a book for those who recognise all too well the pleasure of a sweetly struck seven iron to within a few feet of the pin, followed by the agonizing fury of a three-putt back and forth across the cup.

The Moon Reflected : Later Woodblock Prints from the British Museum
Author: Hiroshige Andō,Julian Opie,Timothy Clark
Publisher: Ikon Gallery
This exhibition, curated by renowned British artist Julian Opie, consisted of woodblock prints by 19th century Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige. An intervention in Ikon's normal sequence of contemporary exhibitions, it demonstrated the relevance of historical work to current artistic practice, and provided another look at printmaking which is an important part of the gallery's programme. The Moon Reflected was the result of Opie's longstanding interest in Hiroshige. Rather than being an exercise in contemporary/historical mix-and-match, it couldn't have been more serious and personal from the British artist's point of view. His preference for Hiroshige's later work is significant as it tends to be broader in style and less narrative, thus accentuating more aesthetic concerns. Born in Tokyo in 1797, Hiroshige studied printmaking and painting, becoming an illustrator of comic poetry and story books. This exhibition featured three series as well as a number of the artist's sketchbooks and the famous Snow, Moon and Flowers triptychs. Beautiful and unpretentious, these works, assembled from three separate prints, epitomise Hiroshige's vision, extraordinary for their breadth and ambition. This fully illustrated publication contains an interview between acclaimed British artist Julian Opie and Timothy Clark of the Japanese Section, The British Museum. Published on the occasion of the exhibition Utagawa Hiroshige: The Moon Reflected at Ikon Gallery, November 2007 - January 2008.
