Hiroshige’s One Hundred Famous Views of Edo, actually composed of 118 splendid woodblock landscape and genre scenes of mid 19th century Tokyo, is one of the greatest achievements of Japanese art. The series, reproduced from an exceptionally fine, first-edition set in the Brooklyn Museum of Art, contains many of Hiroshige’s best-loved and most extraordinary prints. Each plate is accompanied by a commentary that discusses its artistic and cultural interest in detail.
