Antique Original Japanese Woodblock Hiroshige Seven Hot Springs of Hakone 1852
Antique Original Japanese Woodblock by Hiroshige Seven Hot Springs of Hakone 1852. Antique Original Japanese Woodblock by Utagawa Hiroshige of the series Hakone shichiyu sue (Seven Hot Springs of Hakone), 1852. It depicts the famous hot springs of Hakone, where the Hakone shrine is, near Mount Fuji. The image shows beautiful green mountains, with a lake and overflowing waterfalls coming down from the springs, with a few buildings built into the mountains, and the ocean in the far horizon with a orange hued evening sky. Utagawa Hiroshige Japanese: born Ando Tokutaro 1797 – 12 October 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 Tokaido and for his vertical-format landscape series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo. The popular series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji by Hokusai was a strong influence on Hiroshige’s choice of subject, though Hiroshige’s approach was more poetic and ambient than Hokusai’s bolder, more formal prints. 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.
