Description
Mt. Hiyori and Toba Bay in Shima Province, no. 8, or, Shima hiyoriyama toba minato by Hiroshige. Includes alternate title on tissue paper: Mt. Hiyoriyama in Shima Provinco. Reprint of ukiyo-e print originally from the series Pictures of Famous Places in the Sixty-Odd Provinces. Hiroshige (1797-1958) was the foremost landscape artist of the Edo period known for capturing the essence or spirit of nature in his prints and for his depictions of authentic, everyday Japanese life. Found in the Fry Family Papers, 1837-1993, this print was likely a souvenir acquired a missionary or someone with ties to the Fry family and presented to the Fry's as a gift for their philanthropic support. Japanese prints, and Hiroshige's in particular, were popular with Western collectors. Hiroshige's ukiyo-e, or woodblock prints, influenced the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists with Monet owning some of Hiroshige's work and Van Gogh reproducing paintings of several of Hiroshige's prints in his impressionistic style. Date approximated.
