歌川広重「名所江戸百景 市中繁栄七夕祭」アダチ版復刻浮世絵

Tanabata Festival in Edo -One Hundred Famous Views of Edo-

Tanabata Festival or Star Festival of July 7 enlivened the summer of Edo. Bamboo branches adorned with long narrow paper strips of varied colors under an orange blush sky remind one of the thriving Edo of by-gone days. Mt. Fuji in a summer attire far beyond the donjon of he Edo Castle looks down upon the city.

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.
