Andō Hiroshige – 安藤 広重 (1797-1858) – Bird & Cherry Blossoms – 鳥と桜


Hiroshige was one of the most prolific artists in Japanese history. Since ancient times, the Japanese have considered kachō-ga (or kachō-e) an elegant expression of nature through art. The pieces also contain ancient symbolism. Here, the sakura (cherry blossoms) are feminine beauty, strength and sensuality. The writing reads: “I will break off a branch of the wild cherry blossom and enjoy its beauty” (possibly in an “ikebana” flower arrangement). Publisher: Oedo Mokuhansha. High quality.
