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 morning glory is auspicious for the immediacy of love (because it opens quickly to the sun) as well as rebirth (because it closes and opens over and over). A grasshopper brings good luck. Published in the 1970s by Takamizawa. Made in the exact traditional manner as the original. Date: Shōwa period*Please click the top left corner of the photos to enlarge them.
