High Levels of Natural Radiation and Radon Areas

Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Ever more attention has been focused on naturally occurring radiation, thanks to the shift of public concern and scientific interest from high to low-level radiation in recent years. There are many places in the world that are known to have high levels of terrestrial background gamma radiation as well as highly concentrated radon and their decay products in the air, soil and drinking water. Various scientific investigations have been conducted in those areas to collect information on radiation doses and their health effects, contributing greatly to advancing our knowledge. In recent years, technologically enhanced naturally occurring radioactive material (TENORM) has also attracted attention. The 6th International Conference on High Levels of Natural Radiation and Radon Areas was held in Osaka, Japan from September...

Book Description
An exquisite presentation of unique sketchbooks by the great Japanese master Hiroshige Ando (1797-1858). While Hiroshige's splendid woodblock prints, in particular his Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido Road, are among the most widely reproduced and best-loved prints in Japanese history, his sketches have rarely been circulated or seen. The sketchbooks date from around 1840 and were created as Hiroshige traveled around Japan. They contain subject matter that ranges from serene landscape and rural scenes to delightful renderings of interiors, historical...

Book Description
Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) holds an assured place in the history of art as one of the greatest masters of the wood-block print. This volume offers an excellent overview of the accomplished artist who, together with Hokusai, was the leading creator of landscape imagery in Japanese printmaking. If Hokusai is recognized for his bold compositions and clearly defined forms, Hiroshige is the master of the passing moment - the artist of mist, snow, and rain. The immense popularity of Hiroshige's prints meant that they were continually reprinted, wearing down the woodblocks. For this book, every effort has been made to reproduce only the finest early impressions. Each plate is provided with a commentary by Matthi Forrer who, in an introductory essay, examines Hiroshige's life and work, assessing his place in Japanese...

Book Review
Besides being the catalog of a marvelous exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Hiroshige: One Hundred Famous Views of Edo is the definitive study of the last series of landscapes produced by the Japanese woodblock-print artist Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858). These designs of Edo, or modern Tokyo, are among the most familiar images of Japanese art in the world: copies were printed by the thousands until the wooden blocks wore out. The Brooklyn Museum's set is of the highest quality, early impressions with extraordinarily skilful and subtle use of printing techniques, especially color gradation. Each of the designs, which ultimately numbered 118, is shown in the book full-size with a long caption on the facing page. The author's descriptions, impeccably researched, take us on a guided tour of the old city. Many of the...

From Publishers Weekly
This attractive, large-format coffee-table book offers a most accessible introduction to the work of Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858), master Japanese print maker and artistic force during the Edo period, an exciting era in Japanese art. Bird and flower painting kacho-e is a sub-genre of the ukiyo-e style. Though naturalistic, ukiyo-e "aims to capture the spirit or essence of the object depicted, not strictly its material form." The 91 spectacular color plates, reproduced from the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Collection at the Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, highlight Hiroshige's refined color sense, economy of composition and delicate, never-sentimental renderings. Haiku or kyoka translations accompany most plates, and an informative introduction by Bogel (former curator of Asian art, RISD) gives a short...
