Hiroshige: 2019 Wall Calendar

by Utagawa Hiroshige
£10.99   calendar  Pomegranate Communications (2018)

Hiroshige: 2019 Wall Calendar by Utagawa Hiroshige Utagawa Hiroshige’s best-known woodblock prints were published during a time of transition in his homeland. After centuries of political and cultural seclusion, Japan was nearing the close of its peaceful, prosperous Edo period, and the nation would soon open to the West. In his artwork, Hiroshige (Japanese, 1797–1858) preserved his vision of picturesque Edo (now Tokyo) and the idyllic Japanese countryside. His landscapes chronicled the timelessness of changing seasons, the traditional observances of holidays and festivals, and the workaday lives of the nation’s people. Hiroshige’s harmonious fusion of Japan’s meisho (famous places) tradition with unusual vantage points and striking color palettes proved influential for Western impressionist and postimpressionist artists.
This calendar showcases twelve of Hiroshige’s extraordinary prints in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
