Made by ‘Hiroshige Utagawa’ after own design. Utagawa Hiroshige, also Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858) was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist, considered the last great master of that tradition. Hiroshige is best known for his landscapes, such as the series The Fifty-three Stations of the T’kaid and The Sixty-nine Stations of the Kiso Kaido; and for his depictions of birds and flowers. The subjects of his work were atypical of the ukiyo-e genre, whose typical focus was on beautiful women, popular actors, and other scenes of the urban pleasure districts of Japan’s Edo period (1603?1868).

Condition: Fair, given age. Brownish, remains of water stains, attached to another piece of paper, corners missing bits of paper. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully.
