Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese, 1797–1858) was one of the last great masters of Edo period ukiyo-e painting and polychrome printmaking. He created some of his most memorable and influential works during the 1850s, the final decade of his life. This period of productivity coincided with the end of shogun rule and the subsequent opening of Japan’s political and cultural borders to the West. Hiroshige’s works honor the past and the present, the timeless and the ephemeral. The term ukiyo is a reference to Buddhist belief about the transient nature of life, the “floating world” of living in the moment. In delicately hued ukiyo-e images, Hiroshige evokes the human experience of the natural world—from Mt. Fuji’s permanence to the fleeting beauty of cherry blossoms in temple gardens. This calendar showcases twelve of Hiroshige’s prints in the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
