Hiroshige: Nature and the City is a comprehensive, in-depth look at the remarkable career of renowned Japanese print artist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858). It is based on the extensive Alan Medaugh collection, one of the largest private collections of Hiroshige's work outside of Japan. With 500 entries, the catalogue focuses on his portrayal of both city and countryside landscapes, along with fan prints and prints featuring birds and flowers. Organized chronologically by subject, it showcases Hiroshige's depictions of urban scenes in his hometown of Edo (now Tokyo), his famous series of Japanese highways, and his serene nature prints. The catalogue also includes transcriptions and translations of the poetry often incorporated into Hiroshige's works, as well as careful attention to the differences between variant editions of his prints. A valuable resource for scholars, dealers, and collectors alike.

About the Artist

Utagawa Hiroshige

Utagawa Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist, considered the last great master of that tradition. Hiroshige is best known for his horizontal-format landscape series The Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō and for his vertical-format landscape series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo. The subjects of his work were atypical of the ukiyo-e genre, whose typical focus was on beautiful women, popular actors, and other scenes of the urban pleasure districts of Japan's Edo period (1603–1868). Subtle use of color was essential in Hiroshige's prints, often printed with multiple impressions in the same area and with extensive use of bokashi (color gradation), both of which were rather labor-intensive techniques.
