2016 Hiroshige Wall Calendar


Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese, 1797–1858) was born, lived, and died in Edo (Tokyo), which by the eighteenth century was the world’s largest city. During this period, a newly prosperous middle class developed a love for richly colored woodblock prints depicting landscapes, flowers, and scenes of daily life. Issued between 1856 and 1858, Hiroshige’s series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo ranks among the greatest achievements of Japanese art and remains a precious record of Edo. Twelve such images are included in this calendar.
