The art of the Ukiyo-e School of Popular Painting reflected the artistic expression of an isolated civilization which, when it became accessible to the West, significantly influenced a number of European artists.

Both Monet and Van Gogh drew inspiration from this new style.In Edo, now modern Tokyo, Hiroshige was the pupil of Toyohiro. On the death of his teacher, Hiroshige moved to Kyoto where he set up his own studio. Of the sets of prints he created there many were views on the Tokaido road and these made Hiroshige famous. Early European visitors began buying and bringing the works home- this triggered a fascination for Japanese art in Europe which remains to this day.The composition of the works in this series is striking and reveals astonishing artistic diversity.

The contrast of the plains and the richness of the colors, combine to confirm the extraordinary talent of Hiroshige.Here Mikhail Uspensky examines the artistic qualities of a selection of Hiroshiges prints (and earlier works) held in Russian museums. The author discusses the history of ukiyo-e style in Hiroshiges works and those of other practitioners. Illustrations are accompanied by explanations and poetic captions.
