About This Item

Artist Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese, 1797–1858) was born, lived, and died in Edo (renamed Tokyo in 1868), which became Japan’s de facto political capital in 1603. By the eighteenth century Edo was the world’s largest city, with a population exceeding one million. During this period, a newly prosperous middle class developed a love for richly colored woodblock prints depicting landscapes, flowers, and scenes of daily life.

Hiroshige’s extraordinary woodblock-print series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo ranks among the greatest achievements of Japanese art. Issued from 1856 to 1858, the 118 woodblock scenes remain a precious record of the appearance and spirit of Edo at the culmination of more than two centuries of uninterrupted peace and prosperity. The twelve prints featured here are from the collection of the Brooklyn Museum.
