Biography
Hiroshige

1797–1858, Japanese painter and color-print artist of the ukiyo-e school. His prolific work includes a series of landscapes (1833) entitled Fifty-three Stages of the Tokaido Highway.

He painted flowers, fish, and birds, but his important prints are landscapes, frequently snow, rain, mist, or moonlight scenes. From him Whistler drew inspiration for his nocturnal scenes. Hiroshige is represented in the major museums of Tokyo, London, New York City, and Boston, and in many private collections.
