Hiroshige is considered one of the most important artists of the Japanese woodblock print. His landscapes, often combined with serene scenes of everyday life, are especially famous. The ukiyo-e (“picture of the floating world”) captivate their audience with their refined structures and finely tuned color schemes, allowing a change to immerse oneself into the Japanese world on the 19th century. They continued to fascinate viewers to this day. The simple aesthetics of the woodblock prints with their spatial composition and bold perspectives also inspired European artists, particularly the French Impressionists and Post- Impressionists.
