One Hundred Famous Views of Edo - In 1856, Hiroshige began designing what was to be his last great series and a masterpiece, "One Famous Views of Edo." Each print from this series was a classic Hiroshige landscape work, taking advantage of the vertical format to capture a slice of life from Edo in dramatic and interesting ways. The series was very popular with the public and new releases were eagerly anticipated over the time that Hiroshige released the designs. Beautifully colored and finely printed, our prints from this series are a nice opportunity to collect these 19th century landscape images.
Yanagishima - Lovely rural Hiroshige print of Yanagishima or Willow Island in the far northeast of Edo. Boats travel through the junction of the two canals and pedestrians make their way across the Willow Bridge to visit Myoken Hall, seen at the far left of the frame. An attractive design with excellent detail and fine bokashi shading.
