SUMMARY

ARTIST

Utagawa Hiroshige

Utagawa Hiroshige1797-1858

At the age of 13, he inherited the family estate and lost his parents at the same time. At 15, he became a disciple of Utagawa Toyohiro, and took on the name Hiroshige. His teacher Toyohiro passed, and Hiroshige published Famous Places in the Eastern Capital in 1831, and the next year in 1832, published The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido, which would be his masterpiece. This firmly established his status as a landscape artist. From that point on, he received commissions one after another, and worked on many pictures of famous places, rich in poetic sentiment, including The Sixty-nine Stations of the Kiso Kaido, co-created with Keisai Eisen. In his final years, he released the culmination of his artistic skill, One Hundred Famous Views of Edo, as his last crowning achievement.
