Hiroshige II

Actual View of Hirose, Unshu Province (Unshu hirose shinkei) from the series “One Hundred Famous Views in the Various Provinces (Shokoku meisho hyakkei)” #59

The series dates from the middle of Hiroshige II's career, when he was in his mid-thirties. 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 'Hiroshige'; the prints in this series are signed 'Hiroshige'.

The series title is in the tall rectangular cartouche in the top right corner; the title of each individual print is in the square cartouche to its left.
