Hiroshige: Cherry Blossoms boxed notecard set (20 cards)
Beautiful notecard set featuring four Hiroshige’s extraordinary woodblock-prints from One Hundred Famous Views of Edo series, one of the greatest achievements of Japanese art. Produced between 1856 and 1858, these landscape and genre scenes of mid-nineteenth-century Tokyo remain a precious record of the appearance, and spirit, of Edo at the culmination of more than two centuries of uninterrupted peace and prosperity.
Artist Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese, 1797–1858) was born, lived, and died in Edo (renamed Tokyo in 1868). The four prints reproduced in this notecard assortment highlight the delicate cherry blossoms of Edo.
