Hiroshige II

Wonderful snow scene from the series Forty-Eight Famous Views of Edo.  No. 32.

The title of each individual print is in the scroll cartouche to the left of the vertical rectangular series title cartouche; the number of each print is on the rolled up edge of the scroll. The series dates from close to the start of Hiroshige II's career, when he was about thirty-four years old. At this point, he had just started using the name 'Hiroshige', since his master Hiroshige I had just died (in 1858), and Hiroshige II had taken over the gō 'Hiroshige'; the prints in this series are signed 'Hiroshige'.
