About the art

53 page full-color exhibition catalogue, including 46 illustrations


Ronin Gallery is pleased to present a very special exhibition of selected masterpiece landscapes by Hiroshige. From majestic landscapes to lively street scenes, Hiroshige's portrayal of the Japanese landscape not only illustrates the beauty of Japan during the four seasons, but also the dynamic life of the people who lived there. His prints are known universally for their daring and dramatic compositions that influenced the Impressionists and changed the course of Western art. Monet was so entranced by the "Kameido Bridge" print, within the 100 Views of Edo series, that he built a drum bridge in the garden of his home and depicted it in his famed painting "Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies." Toulouse-Lautrec was fascinated with Hiroshige's daring diagonal compositions and inventive use of perspective and Whistler painted a series entitled "The Nocturnes" inspired by Hiroshige's "Kyobashi Bridge." Van Gogh owned over 25 Hiroshige prints and literally copied  both the "Plum Garden at Kameido" and "Sudden Shower at Ohashi Bridge."
