      Hiroshige was a Japanese artist known for his ukiyo-e woodblock prints. Characterized by unusual perspectives, seasonal references, and striking colors, the artist’s series Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō (–) exemplifies Hiroshige’s unique skill. Born Andō Hiroshige in in Edo (present-day Tokyo), Japan, he entered the studio of Utagawa Toyohiro around , and later. It was Hiroshige who immortalized the Tokaido. In the famous prints of the fifty-three stages reproduced in this book, this master artist of the ukiyo-e print captured the beauty, romance, adventure, mystery, and joy - all the myriad and glowing facets of the people and places, in all seasons and times of day, of the Tokaido highway.

      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.   This superb overview of Hiroshige's oeuvre is arranged according to subject matter: prints of birds and flowers; scenes of his native city; landscapes; still-lifes; a selection from his renowned series, One Hundred Famous Views in Edo; images of mist, snow, rain, and moonlight; and drawings and other works related to the artist's s:
