The True Sources of Hiroshige’s Tokaido Series

Sunday at 2 p.m.

 

 

 

Legend maintains that Utagawa Hiroshige based his woodblock-print series Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido (Tokaido gojusan tsugi no uchi) on his travels along the Tokaido, the arterial road that connected Edo (present-day Tokyo) with Kyoto. This lecture will demonstrate that the majority of Hiroshige’s designs are, in fact, based on illustrations from travel guides. Speaker: Andreas Marks, Director and Chief Curator, The Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture, Hanford, CA. Lecture Hall, 1st level. read more
