Sudden Shower over Shin-Ōhashi bridge and Atake by Hiroshige in 1857
Ando Hiroshige is considered by many as the last of the great creative masters of the traditional Japanese woodblock print. He dominated landscape printmaking.
His greatest impressionist fan in Europe was with no doubt Van Gogh. In September 1887 he even copied the above woodblock print and produced an oil version >>> check it out Van Gogh copy of Hiroshige’s Bridge.
(Hiroshige’s sky was ranked in 2012 by newspaper the Guardian among “The 10 best… skies in art” along with Vangogh’starry night).
