Historical Context:
Ando Hiroshige (1797 – 1858) was one of the last great Japanese artists in the tradition of "ukiyo-e", the genre of art that includes Japanese woodblock prints and paintings. His work is recognized for its unique vantage points, employing Western principles of perspective in order to achieve depth; and also for its recurring seasonal themes. He worked extensively within the realm of "meisho-e", Japanese for "pictures of famous places".
