Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese, 1797-1858) was one of the last great masters of Edo period ukiyo-e painting and polychrome printmaking. He created some of his most memorable and influential works during the 1850s, the final decade of his life. This period of productivity coincided with the end of shogun rule and the subsequent opening of Japan's political and cultural borders to the West. Hiroshige's works honor the past and the present, the timeless and the ephemeral. The term ukiyo is a reference to Buddhist belief about the transient nature of life, the "floating world" of living in the moment. In delicately hued ukiyo-e images, Hiroshige evokes the human experience of the natural worldfrom Mt. Fuji's permanence to the fleeting beauty of cherry blossoms in temple gardens. This calendar showcases twelve of Hiroshige's prints in the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

"The calendar contains reproductions of some of Hiroshige's prints. They are spectacular. I especially like how he portrayed rain pouring down. I first saw one of these on the walls of Monet's home in Giverny, France. Monet collected Japanese prints." -Bob

Utagawa Hiroshiges best-known woodblock prints were published during a time of transition in his homeland. After centuries of political and cultural seclusion, Japan was nearing the close of its peaceful, prosperous Edo period, and the nation would soon open to the West. In his artwork, Hiroshige (Japanese, 17971858) preserved his vision of picturesque Edo (now Tokyo) and the idyllic Japanese countryside. His landscapes chronicled the timelessness of changing seasons, the traditional observances of holidays and festivals, and the workaday lives of the nations people. Hiroshiges harmonious fusion of Japans meisho (famous places) tradition with unusual vantage points and striking color palettes proved influential for Western impressionist and postimpressionist artists.
