Picture 3 is the back of the work and the printing block used. The fact that the print dye is backcopied is a proof that it is not printing. Hiroshige UTAGAWA (Hiroshige Utagawa) was born as a son of Genemon ANDO, a lower-ranking samurai in Edo and a doshin (1832) of the Yatsushiro Riverside Fire Station, and it is said that he joined the procession of the bakufu (Envoys for the presentation of horses) in the fall of Tenpo 3 and had an opportunity to go to Kyoto (Tokaido return trip to Kyoto). In Tenpo 4 (1833),’The 53 Stations of the Tokaido’ which is said to be a masterpiece, was born. This work, which used perspective, was very popular not only for its three-dimensional depiction of wind and rain, but also as a way to get a glimpse of the outside world that people at that time admired. Hiroshige’s works are highly praised in Europe and the United States for their bold composition and the beauty of blue, especially indigo blue. In Europe and America, it is also called “Japan Blue” or “Phellodendron blue” after Vermeer Blue (Lapis lazuli). It is said to have had a great influence on impressionists and art nouveau artists who were born in France in the latter half of the 19 century, and was one of the factors that made Japonism popular at that time. [Description of the work] Famous place Edo Hyakkei. Kitsunebi (fox fire) for Oji-shozoku (costume for the prince) on New Year’s Eve’: At present, at Oji Inari in Kita Ward, there was a countryside at that time, and it is said that foxes gathered from all over the Kanto region on the night of New Year’s Eve every year wore their costumes and held a ceremony under a hackberry tree, which was close to Oji Inari, and visited the shrine all together. In addition, there remains a mysterious tradition that farmers in the neighborhood were predicting whether they would have a good or bad harvest in the New Year by the amount of Kitsunebi that is said to have happened at that time. The ukiyo-e is a fantastical and fanciful ukiyo-e with a forest surrounded by the cold sky and darkness in winter, and foxes floating in the forest with dignity and flames. Track ing numb ering.
