Hiroshige Book of Postcards
Produced between 1856 and 1858 by the artist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858), “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo”, a collection of woodblock prints, has had a lasting influence on Western art. The Japanese gardens in these prints inspired Claude Monet, and Vincent van Gogh owned several of Hiroshige’s prints depicting plum trees in bloom. Views of Mt. Fuji, city parks, lakes, and peaceful landscapes comprise the 30 dramatic prints in this book of postcards, epitomizing Hiroshige’s superb compositions.
