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 Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō ( 東海道五十三次 , Tōkaidō Gojūsan-tsugi ? ) , in the Hōeidō edition (1833–1834), presented here, is a series of ukiyo-e woodcut prints created by Utagawa Hiroshige after his first travel along the Tōkaidō in 1832. [ 1 ] 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).
