Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) was a Japanese artist, and a master of the colour woodblock art print. Hiroshige began studying the art of woodblock printing - and his earliest art prints were primarily book illustrations, and it wasn't until the 1830s, that Hiroshige began to find success with the genres for which he would become best known…landscapes, kacho-e, birds and flower prints. Hiroshige expertly captured moody and atmospheric weather conditions, rendering mist, rain and snow with great skill and beauty. His poetic landscapes have a distinctly human touch, with the addition of figures that lend a personal element to balance the beauty of nature. During his life Hiroshige designed an estimated 4,500 prints, mainly landscapes that still hold a fascination for viewers today.
