Asian art   •   Utagawa Hiroshige @ Wikipedia

The son of a low-ranking samurai born in Edo (now Tokyo), followed Hiroshige, whose real name Ando Tokutaro, his father in the position of a firefighter in higher function. He lost his parents at the age of 12. Despite his professional position, it may have been more of the adverse living conditions than an obvious gift that led the young man to an artistic activity. During his apprenticeship in the workshop of the printing master Utagawa Toyohiro, who gave him the name "Hiroshige" and that of his school "Utagawa", he learned from observation and acquired the skills to handle paintbrush and pen. These were the indispensable prerequisites for creating templates for the traditional woodblock prints. First illustrations appeared after 1818.

The spectrum of his works includes the themes and motifs customary in 19th-century Japanese woodcuts: depictions of scenes of everyday life, of nature and landscape, of special events, as well as of individuals, often graceful female figures. One of the highlights of his artistic practice is the publication of the series "The 53 Stations of the Tokaido". The series of 55 pages, created between the beginning of the 1830s and 1835, shows the landscapes and people typical of him in naturalistic depiction and elegant drawing and coloring. In color, form and balance of composition, they had a significant impact on late 19th-century European painting beyond Japan. © Meisterdrucke
