Detail: Take a journey with renowned Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige through his breathtaking landscape paintings of the 66 provinces of Japan. Completed in 1856, Hiroshige’s Famous Views in the 60-Odd Provinces captured the beauty of Japan in vivid detail, just as leisurely travel was taking hold in the country. From famous landmarks, to beachside cliffs, Hiroshige provided a window into every corner of 19th-century Japan. In a novel approach for landscape prints, Hiroshige used vertical compositions rather than the usual horizontal. This allowed him to emphasize deep distances, towering heights, and unique vantage points.
