Hiroshige (Mega Square) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Mega Square Hiroshige contains 120 prints of Edo commented. Thanks to this didactic stucture, it is one of the best ways to become acquainted with this artist. The Mega Square Hiroshige will be typically the ideal gift in a small and practical format.

Synopsis:

If the charming "Country of the Rising Sun" were to, unfortunately, sink into the depths of the ocean due to one of the volcanic eruptions which threaten to destroy it, it would continue to live on through the magical brush of Utagawa Hiroshige. By looking at his landscapes, the light wings of imagination bring us towards a country of rain showers and twilights – a fairy scene in which rainbows fall to earth, breaking into a thousand prisms – where waters gently flow towards the horizon, scattered with daffodils.

This book offers an unforgettable walk into the heart of timeless art, which expresses the beauty of nature better than any other.
