Hiroshige’s Japan: Stations of the Tokaido Road Exhibition

Thursday 13th April 2017 - Sunday 16th April 2017

A selection of Japanese woodblock prints from the series that made Utagawa Hiroshige one of the best known of all Japanese artists.

Hiroshige's landscape prints are among the most frequently reproduced of all Japanese works of art. This exhibition of 21 prints from the Ashmolean Museum collection, celebrates the series that made Hiroshige’s name: Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road. First published around 1833, the series depicts views along Japan’s mayor highway and is full of fascinating insights into the journey between the great Japanese cities of Edo and Kyoto.

Hiroshige lived from 1797 to 185. As well as his landscapes, he is renowned for his unusual compositions, humorous depictions of people involved in everyday activities and masterly expression of weather, light and season. He influenced many leading European artists such as Monet, Van Gogh and Whistler.
