Komakata Hall and Azuma Bridge by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Komakata Hall and Azuma Bridge
Series; One Hundred Famous Views of Edo

One Hundred Famous Views of Edo - In 1856, Hiroshige began designing what was to be his last great series and a masterpiece, "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo." The series contains 118 vertical format woodblocks of classic Hiroshige landscapes. From spring cherry blossoms to summer fireworks, from quiet scenes along the river to lively festival celebrations, Hiroshige captures life in old Edo in dramatic and interesting ways. Hiroshige employed an inventive compositional technique in many of the prints, using large foreground elements to frame a distant view in the background, such as the image of Kinryuzan Temple seen through the doorway of the famous Thunder Gate. Beautifully printed with fine bokashi shading, "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo" retains its popularity today as one of Hiroshige's great masterworks, and includes some of his most memorable images.

Komakata Hall and Azuma Bridge - Tranquil night view of the Sumida River, with long cargo boats poling past the Azuma Bridge. A small cuckoo flies across the darkening sky as raindrops slant across the scene. At right, the red flag fluttering atop a pole indicates a cosmetics dealer. A wonderful design, attractively colored with fine bokashi shading in the water and sky.
