Utagawa Hiroshige (1797 October 12, 1858) was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist, and one of the last great artists in that tradition. He was also referred to as Ando Hiroshige (an irregular combination of family name and art name) and by the art name of Ichiyusai Hiroshige, Hiroshige was born in 1797 and named "Ando Tokutaro" in the Yayosu barracks, just east of Edo Castle in the Yaesu area of Edo (present-day Tokyo). His father was Ando Gen'emon, a hereditary retainer (of the doshin rank) of the shogun.
Japanese painting is one of the oldest and most highly refined of the Japanese arts and it encompasses a wide variety of genre and styles. The art of painting is so intertwined with Japanese writing since both have traditionally been done with a brush. The history of Japanese painting has a long history of synthesis and competition between native Japanese aesthetics and adaptation of imported ideas.
