Hokusai - The Hundred Views of Mount Fuji
Written in French.
After the first edition published in 2008 by Hazan Editions, the three combined volumes of the Hundred Views of Mount Fuji (with Japanese binding) are once again available in a redesigned boxed set, accompanied by an explanatory booklet retracing the technical and artistic history of the "Hundred Views", each of which is reproduced separately with the indications it contains.
An expression of his genius as a draughtsman and observer inhabited by the multiple beauty of the world, the three volumes of the Hundred Views of Fuji, engraved between 1834 and 1840, constitute one of Hokusai's most famous works. Not only is each composition - that is, each page - of renewed and surprising inspiration, but the power of the almost mystical love that binds man and mountain touches our emotions and surprises our aesthetic conceptions.
