Original woodblock print - Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) - 'Etchu Toyama Funabashi' - From the series "Famous Places in the Sixty-odd Provinces" - 1853
Utagawa Hiroshige (歌川 広重), also Andō Hiroshige (安藤 広重), was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist, considered the last great master of that tradition.
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).
Hiroshige's work came to have a marked influence on Western painting towards the close of the 19th century as a part of the trend in Japonism.
Western artists closely studied Hiroshige's compositions, and some, such as van Gogh, painted copies of Hiroshige's prints.
