Art History

One of the great Japanese landscape artists, Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese, 17971858) created views of his native Japan that are celebrated throughout the world. In his extraordinary series of woodblock prints now in the Brooklyn Museum of Arts collection, One Hundred Famous Views of Edo, Hiroshige developed a style of sharply juxtaposed bold foreground elements as a framing device with distant views. His style blends Western influences with the meisho Japanese tradition.
