歌川広重「東海道五拾三次 嶋田 大井川駿岸」アダチ版復刻浮世絵

Shimada -Oi River -Fifty-three stations of the Tokaido road-

A great number of travelers crossing the first arm of the Oi River. Some are making the passage at the left. The retainers of a daimyo (feudal lord) are waiting their turn on the shore of the near bank. The beautiful shades of blue, yellow, and grey--and the intricate shadings and overprintings of these colors-form an important part of the composition and convey a sense of the great expanse of the riverbed.

Hiroshige was born in 1797, the time when Ukiyo-e was at the height of popularity. He was good at painting since his childhood. At fifteen, through introduction of a certain book dealer, he became a pupil of Utagawa Toyohiro, and was given the artist name Utagawa Hiroshige the following year. The essential characteristic of Hiroshige’s art lies in its poetic atmosphere, which in fact is the characteristic of the Japanese heart. When this lyricism is given free play, there is beautiful music in the picture.
