Utagawa Kunisada (Toyokuni III) - Project My first Japanese woodblock print reproduction I bought aged 15 in the year 1970. In the following two decades I read some books about Japanese woodblock prints and occasionally bought a new print. Where I looked for prints, fleamarkets or auctions, I always could find prints by Kunisada, but I couldn’t find any literature about him.

Hiroshige Posthumes Porträt Hiroshiges von Kunisada, „Gedächtnisbild“, 1858 Utagawa Hiroshige (jap. 歌川 広重, alte Schreibung: 歌川 廣重, * 1797 in Edo (heute: Tokio); † 12. Oktober 1858), war zusammen mit Kuniyoshi und Kunisada einer der drei stilbildenden Meister des japanischen Farbholzschnitts am Ende der Edo-Zeit. Seine besondere Bedeutung liegt in einer völlig neuartigen Komposition des Landschaftsdruckes seiner Zeit und seinem maßgeblichen Einfluss auf die Entwicklung des europäischen Impressionismus. Im Westen ist er unter dem Namen Andō Hiroshige bekannt, einer fälschlich gebrauchten Kombination seines bürgerlichen Familiennamens Andō und dem ihm von seinem Lehrer verliehenen Künstlernamen Hiroshige, zu dem zwingend der Name der Schule Utagawa hinzugefügt werden muss.
The Tōkaidō road, linking the shōgun's capital, Edo, to the imperial one, Kyōto, was the main travel and transport artery of old Japan. It is also the most important of the "Five Roads", the five major roads of Japan (Gokaidō), created or developed during the Edo era to further strengthen the control of the central shogunate administration over the whole country. Even though the Hōeidō edition is by far the best known, The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō was such a popular subject that it led Hiroshige to create some 30 different series of woodcut prints on it, all very different one from the other by their size (ōban or chuban), their designs or even their number (some series include just a few prints). The Hōeidō edition of the Tōkaidō is Hiroshige's best known work, and the best sold ever ukiyo-e Japanese prints. The Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō
