Utagawa Hiroshige: Meguro Journal
Utagawa (née Andō) Hiroshige is best known for his evocative landscapes. What Hiroshige managed to achieve in these landscapes was a unique blend of realism and romanticism, together with his use of unusual vantage points that set him apart from others. In this artwork, we see Mount Fuji as viewed across the slopes of a small-scale replica of the mountain. These mini-Fujis were quite a common feature as they enabled the pious-but-busy to make at least an approximation of the great pilgrimage up Mount Fuji and derive some of the same spiritual benefits.
