Hiroshige ―Rain, Snow, Night


Jun. 8 - Jul. 15

Detail

     Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) was a master artist of ukiyo-e landscapes at the end of the Edo period. His poetic landscape prints with unique composition and rich colors have long been loved by many Japanese.
     His varied landscapes, which allowed people to enjoy the sensation of traveling without leaving home, include landscapes as seen from important routes of the time and pictures of famous places. Not simply pictorial, the landscapes combine a variety of elements such as season, climate, and time of day.
     This exhibition presents Hiroshige's 160 important works, including the whole series of The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido. By introducing the noteworthy features of each work we try to unravel the appeal of Hiroshige’s masterful art.
