Hokusaï The madman of the drawing
New model and new presentation of the book with double Asian paper and full canvas cardboard cover with ribbons.
The book traces the career of this child from a popular district of the former Tokyo called Edo at the time, and the unique atmosphere of this great city and Japanese life when Japan, closed to foreigners, developed a powerful and original culture in a vacuum.
Hokusai, the "drawing madman" as he called himself, became one of the great masters of printmaking and was rediscovered by the Impressionists and aesthetes at the end of the 19th century. Since then, he has remained one of the greatest and, through his personality, one of the most endearing figures in universal art.
