Hiroshige: Scenes of Winter Holiday Card Assortment
Shrouded in snow, the pristine locales of Utagawa Hiroshige’s Japan are untouched by modern life. Hiroshige, a member of the samurai class, inherited his father’s official post as a teenager, though he simultaneously apprenticed as an ukiyo-e artist. He maintained this arrangement for close to two decades, only retiring his official position in the years following the death of his artistic master.
