Have you ever looked at art and thought it could be improved? Here is your chance.
The twenty-two line drawings in this coloring book are created from the print series Thirty-six Selected Flowers, designed in 1866 by Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese, 1797–1858) . In this series, the artist cleverly combines two different subjects in each print. First, he shows a close-up view of beautiful flowers. Then, in the distance behind the flowers, he shows a landscape scene of the place where the flowers grow, somewhere in his home city of Tokyo. Hiroshige was one of the last great masters of traditional Japanese woodblock printmaking, and his magnum opus, the print series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo ranks among the greatest achievements of Japanese art.
Reproductions of Hiroshige’s prints are shown in miniature in full color on the inside front and back covers, so that you can follow his color palette, if you wish.
