Utagawa Hiroshige was one of the most prominent ukiyo-e artists. He is best known for his series of prints The 53 Stations of the Tokaido (1832-1833). His influence was not limited to Japan. Hiroshige's work influenced Europe's Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, including Van Gogh, who copied two of his prints in oil paint.
Utagawa Hiroshige was born in Edo (now Tokyo) in 1797. Born as Tokutaro Ando into a minor samurai family, his artistic talents went largely unnoticed until his breakthrough series of prints The 53 Stations of the Tokaido (1832-1833). In the series, he captured the popular journey along the Tokaido road--the main road between Edo (modern day Tokyo) and Kyoto. He produced some 8,000 works, which can now be seen throughout the world, including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Victoria & Albert Museum & the Tokaido Hiroshige Art Museum.
