    Product Description
    Hiroshige Deluxe Address Book
    Japan’s Edo period (1615–1868) was a time of peace and prosperity. A middle class arose, became wealthy, and cultivated a love of woodblock prints. Early on, a tradition of depicting beautiful women developed, but in the nineteenth century, artists turned to making landscape prints.

    Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858) worked in the landscape genre, capturing atmospheric conditions in bold compositions. In juxtaposing foreground elements with distant scenic views, he created a style that blended Western influences with the meisho (famous places) Japanese tradition. Hiroshige depicted the changing seasons, holidays, and everyday life in Edo (now Tokyo).

    This address book presents forty of Hiroshige’s works from the collection of the Brooklyn Museum. All reproductions derive from Hiroshige’s extraordinary series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo—a strong influence on impressionists and postimpressionists in the West, and a work that has lost none of its power to delight the eye.
