Utagawa Hiroshige: The Series Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō Road and Lyrical World【Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum】

2021/11/15

Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858), known worldwide for his works such as "The Series Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road," became a student of Utagawa Toyohiro at the age of 15. The following year Hiroshige was allowed to create work under his own name and made his debut as an Ukiyo-e artist at the age of 22. The turning point for Hiroshige was his work "The Series Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road" (1833), which he made around the age of 37. Hiroshige became a popular artist through said work, in which he depicted people's lives and the changes in nature in poetic landscapes.
This exhibition features a comparative display including Hiroshige's signature work, "The Series Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road," and his later work "Famous Sights of the Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road" from "The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road." Also featured are a variety of works from his early to his later years, and approximately 230 masterpieces related to "snow, moon, and flowers" by his contemporaries. We hope that you will enjoy Hiroshige's lyrical world while remembering the joy of travel through his masterful Ukiyo-e landscapes.
