Utagawa Hiroshige (Ando Hiroshige)
Station Hakone from the Upright Tokaido

1855

About

Station number 11 on the Tokaido Road, Hakone. Station Hakone was known for its views and its steep terrain. Hiroshige has here chosen to depict the latter, as we see palanquin bearers taking the steep steps in a zigzag fashion. Two attendants carry long torches, as it is nighttime. Strong woodgrain is evident, indicating an early impression. Mica has been applied in the black areas, also indicating a very early impression. From the series Fifty-three Stations of the Tôkaidô Road (Gojusan-tsugi meisho zue), also known as the “Upright Tôkaidô” series. Published by Tsutaya in 1855. Original Japanese color woodblock print by a master who strongly influenced Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists in the west. Excellent impression and color.
