Hiroshige: Views of Japan

Exhibition Website

Jul 20 2016 - Oct 23 2016

Depicted with attention to time of day, weather, and season, Andō Hiroshige's (17971858) landscapes demonstrate sensitivity to the beauty of Japan’s natural topography, as well as to the human influence on it. On view are woodblock prints from his celebrated series The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road, along with impressions from Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji and One Hundred Famous Views of Edo.These prints, a small selection of more than fourteen hundred Japanese prints in the Museum’s collection, are hung adjacent to the 191215 library designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, referencing the influence of Japanese aesthetics on Western art of the early twentieth century and the particular importance of Hiroshige’s sense of space and composition to Frank Lloyd Wright.
