歌川広重「名所江戸百景 日本橋江戸ばし」アダチ版復刻浮世絵

Nihonbashi Bridge and Edobashi Bridge -One Hundred Famous Views of Edo-

In the first print in this set Hiroshige drew a scene around here in a northwestern perspective as seen from the fish-market at the northern edge of Nihonbashi Bridge. In this picture Edobashi Bridge east of Nihonbashi Bridge is depicted as seen from Nihonbashi Bridge.The white buildings are the whitewashed clay-built warehouses, many of them lined the banks between the two bridges. In the lower right corner is seen a fishmonger’s tub in which fish are kept for sale. The fish are bonitos, one of the symbols of early summer for the Edoites. The other features of early summer were green leaves and cuckoos. The picture conveys a seasonal interest of the people of Edo.

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.
