Series; Famous Places in Tokyo

Hiroshige III's Famous Places in Tokyo - Attractive design from a series depicting famous places in Tokyo, published over several years starting in 1868. Hiroshige III includes traditional locations and activities, as well as modern Meiji sights, such as Western style buildings and transportation. These lively scenes are filled with wonderful detail, carefully rendered with vibrant color and soft shading. A great look at the rapid changes taking place in Tokyo during the Meiji era.

River Embankment, 1868 - Interesting view of a grassy river embankment with a rickshaw approaching at right and a couple walking in the opposite direction. The beauty carries an umbrella, and the young man beside her gestures over the water. Willow trees in gray shadows frame the scene, with a bridge and hill in the distance in light gray silhouette. A nice composition.
