Hokusai. A look at both banks of the Sumida River followed by The Yodo River
One of the most beautiful urban view albums in Hokusai. From 1795, the time he established his own business under his own name, the Japanese artist Hokusai (1760-1849) produced a number of albums dedicated to the most famous places in the capital Edo (now Kyoto).
This facsimile edition recreates the panoramic view in its entirety for the first time, as Hokusai had conceived it, thanks to an accordion shape that can be unfolded at will to view it in one piece.
A booklet, written by specialist Matthi Forrer, describes the subject of each board, namely the actions of local residents, shoppers, shopkeepers, hikers, inn owners, fishermen, junk walkers, all characters captured in the naturalness of the action with great vitality.
