Hiroshige: Snow Scenes Assortment, Boxed Holiday Cards

About the Artist

Utagawa Hiroshige, the last major master of the ukiyo-e school, contributed notably to the development of the landscape print and to the field of flower-and-bird prints. Born in 1797, Hiroshige was the son of an Edo fire warden and inherited his father’s post. But in 1811 he entered into a printmaking studio, publishing his first dated work seven years later. After 20 years as an artist, in 1831 Hiroshige began (now under the influence of the great Hokusai) the series of landscape prints that were to make his name: Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido.

Description

This boxed holiday card assortment contains four prints by ukiyo-e artist Utagawa Hiroshige: Toeizan Temple and Shinobazu Pond, Ueno; Snow in the Grounds of the Fudo Shrine at Meguro; Daybreak after a Snowfall at Susaki; and Snow Scene at Kinryuzan Buddhist Temple, Askausa District. These snow scenes originate from the portfolio Eight Snow Scenes in the Eastern Capital, a work that is not widely known but represents the artist at his best—a master of the impressionist, poetic view of nature.
