Original Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Print
Amadai, Mebaru, and Wasabi Root
Grand Series of Fishes

Grand Series of Fishes - In the 1830s, Hiroshige designed a series of twenty oban size woodblocks of fish, published in two sets of ten prints each, with the second set released around 1840. This untitled series, sometimes called the Grand Series of Fishes, fits into the genre of kacho-e (birds and flowers prints), which focuses on carefully observed birds, insects, fish, and flowers in natural habitats.

Beautifully detailed varieties of fish and sea life are artfully arranged with grasses or plants against backgrounds with soft bokashi shading. Originals from this series are somewhat rare, but a second edition printed from the original blocks appeared shortly after Hiroshige's death.
