Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) was one of the last great artists in the ukiyo-e tradition.
Literally meaning "pictures of the floating world", ukiyo-e refers to the famous Japanese woodblock print genre. Though Hiroshige captured a variety of subjects, his greatest talent was in creating landscapes of his native Edo (modern-day Tokyo) and his most famous work was a series known as "100 Famous Views of Edo" (1856-1858). This book provides an introduction to his work and an overview of his career.
