Japanese woodblock prints, or ukiyo-e, are the most recognizable Japanese art form. Their massive popularity has spread from Japan to be embraced by a worldwide audience. Covering the period from the beginning of the Japanese woodblock print in the 1680s until the year 1900, Japanese Woodblock Prints provides a detailed survey of all the famous ukiyo-e artists, along with over 500 full-color prints. Unlike previous examinations of this art form, Japanese Woodblock Prints includes detailed histories of the publishers of woodblock prints—who were often the driving force determining which prints, and therefore which artists, would make it into mass circulation for a chance at critical and popular success. Invaluable as a guide for ukiyo-e enthusiasts looking for detailed information about their favorite Japanese woodblock print artists and prints, it is also an ideal introduction for newcomers to the world of the woodblock print. This lavishly illustrated book will be a valued addition to the libraries of scholars, as well as the general art enthusiast.

With dozens of classic miniature Japanese woodblock prints and informative text, this Japanese art book is an essential for print collectors. Of the many genres of ukio-e, perhaps the least known is that of the diminutive surimono produced by Utamaro, Kiyonaga, Hokusai, Hiroshige, and others. They were the small, relatively little-known woodblock prints of the Tokugawa era, produced in smaller numbers and better quality than the ukiyo-e prints as we know them today. This beautifully illustrated book, a collector's item, is based on the author's private collection of more than sixty years. It is a unique introduction to the background and aesthetic appreciation of the rare and elegant art form. Included in the pages are notes on technique, terminology, surimono collecting and commissioning, as well as biographies of known surimono artists, and a detailed list of surimono catalogs and exhibitions. The text is supplemented by 33 color plates, Index Glossary, and Annotated Bibliography.

Lyric landscapes, Geishas, and dramatic theater scenes--a bright and ephemeral world is shown on these valuable Japanese wood prints, which came to the collection of the Städtische Museen Freiburg one hundred years ago. That these rare examples of high quality came to the museum is the merit of Ernst Grosse, ethnologist and director of the Städtische Kunstsammlungen at that time. Because of his connection with the Japanese art dealer Tadamsa Hayashi, he was able to build an extraordinary collection of Japanese artworks. This catalog for the exhibition in the Haus der Graphischen Sammlung Freiburg presents approximately sixty works, some of them prints by Hokusai and Hiroshige, newly interpreted by the East Asian specialist Hans Bjarne Thomsen from Zürich.
