Hokusai's Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido, circa 1804 - Terrific image from an early Tokaido series by Hokusai dating around 1804. These lovely designs emphasize figures rather than scenery, focusing on the travelers, townspeople, merchants, and laborers encountered along this famed road. Carefully detailed and softly colored, these charming scenes beautifully capture life along the Tokaido in the Edo era. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has many images from this series in its collection.
