Artist Hiroshige
Year 1856–58
Type ukiyo-e

One Hundred Famous Views of Edo (in Japanese 名所江戸百景 Meisho Edo Hyakkei ) is a series of ukiyo-e prints begun and largely completed by the Japanese artist Hiroshige (1797–1858). The prints were first published in serialized form in 1856–59, with Hiroshige II completing the series after Hiroshige's death. It was tremendously popular and much reprinted.

In the years 1829–36 an illustrated guide Pictures of famous places of Edo (江戸名所図会, Edo meisho zue) was published. It had been begun by Saitō Yukio (1737–1799) in 1790 and was completed by his Yukitaka and his grandchild Yukinari. This guide in seven volumes was illustrated by Hasegawa Settan (1778–1848) very accurately. Pictures and texts describe the important temples and shrines, but also the famous stores, restaurants, tea-houses etc. In addition, Edo with Sumida river and its channels, but also the surrounding landscape is depicted. Hiroshige, in several cases, makes use of this guide for his series of colour prints (s. below and within the list).

It is a work that inspired a number of Western artists, including Vincent van Gogh, to experiment with imitations of Japanese methods.[1]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The main order used in the table is according to (Trede, Melanie; Bichler, Lorenz (2010). One Hundred Famous Views of Edo. Cologne: Taschen) and follows by reading the fan-shaped box for summer on the table of contents print in the way of "scattered writing" (chirashigaki), i.e. by grouping the titles in sets of three. The alternative order given in parentheses is generally found in early 20th century sources and follows by reading the fan shaped-box for the summer titles in the normal way, i.e. (vertical) line by line.
  2. ^ For views that are not located within the modern Tokyo, the prefecture and city are listed.
  3. ^ In Japanese poetry the cry of the cuckoo is a symbol of longing and loneliness.
  4. ^ Its mouth (into Edo Bay) is not depicted in the print
  5. ^ Hiroshige had become a monk in 1856.
