“53 Stations of the Tōkaidō as Potted Landscapes” – Utagawa Yoshishige (1848)

January 5th, 2017 § 0 comments § permalink

The Tokaido is one of a number of roads linking Edo with the rest of Japan. It runs along the Pacific coast to Kyoto. The ’53 stations’ are resting points along the way. In 1832 the artist Utagawa Hiroshige began the first of a number of print series, which depicted the resting points, and these became very popular in Japan (one series becoming apparently the best selling ‘ukiyo-e‘ of all time). The prints in this post are by a different artist, Utagawa Yoshishige, and depict a series of actual potted landscapes (saikei and bonkeimade by a man called Kimura Tōsen. So these prints are based on small sculptures, which were inspired by prints, which were inspired by a walk, made possible by a road. You can see all 53 of the prints and the book here.

Yes, yes, yes. This is a brilliant book – saddening, maddening and moving.
