Edited by Rossella Menegazzo.

Hiroshige is the master of the passing moment—the artist of mist, snow and rain

Alongside Katsushika Hokusai, Kitagawa Utamaro and Utagawa Kuniyoshi, Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858) was one of the great protagonists of Japanese ukiyo-e printmaking. Hiroshige was around 30 years younger than Hokusai, and compared himself to the older master constantly; to set himself apart, Hiroshige decided to make landscape the focus of his work, creating images that still evoke powerful impressions of harmony, serenity and peace. Rendering the landscape and the human figure with quick, direct lines that are so animated they call to mind simplified, elegant manga drawings, Hiroshige earned himself the moniker "master of nature."

Hiroshige: Visions of Japan presents a selection of some 230 works from the most important series by the artist, including his views of famous places in the capital city of Edo as well as scenes set in the farthest provinces, alongside images of animals, flowers and insects. From Hiroshige's early works to the influence of his work in the west (Hiroshige was a favorite of Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet and Paul Cézanne), this beautiful monograph surveys the Japanese master's entire career. Also included are reproductions of original drawings by Hiroshige and rarely seen, still-intact printing plates.
