Utagawa Ando Hiroshige Japanese Print Sazaidō Hall at Five Hundred Rakan Temple

About the Item

A wonderful Japanese woodblock print by famed Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige (Ando Hiroshige) (1797-1858) titled "The Sazaido Hall at the Five Hundred Rakan Temple (Gohyaku Rakan Sazaido)" and from his One Hundred Famous Views of Edo series which consisted of 119 ukiyo-e prints begun and largely completed by Hiroshige (Hiroshige II completing the series after Hiroshige's death). The prints were first published in Japan in serialized form from 1856–59. Hiroshige divided the 119 images into Four Seasons. This work, number 66, was part of his summer section images. The print is signed and sealed by Hiroshige who is universally considered Japan's finest ukiyo-e artist and the last great master of the tradition, and exhibits a wonderful composition, rich, beautiful colors, and features tiny pieces of mica in the trees below that shine and sparkle at various angles in the light. Hiroshige's work can be found in numerous collections and museums including: The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston The Honolulu Museum of Art, Hawaii The Harvard Art Museum, Boston The British Museum, London UK Chazen Museum of Art, University of Wisconsin-Madison The Waseda University Theatre Museum The Edo Tokyo Museum, Japan The print was acquired in Kyoto, Japan in the 1950s/60s at The Red Lantern Shop which specialized in authentic and original Japanese prints and art (Please see the last image which was on the verso of the other Hiroshige print we are listing but clearly notes this print as well). Would be a great addition to any collectors of Hiroshige's work or fine Japanese prints/ art or eye-catching stand-alone accent work in about any setting. Frame dimensions: 20" High, 14" Wide, 1"Deep Viewable image: 13.5" x 9".
