Many are familiar with “Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido” (Hoeido Edition) by Utagawa Hiroshige. However, not many are aware that there was another Eshi who had also depicted the “Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido” with the Hoeido Edition Tokaido as the background. This exhibition will introduce three series including “Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido” by Utagawa Hiroshige, “Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido Road” by Utagawa Kunisada, and the collaboration piece “Fifty-three Stations by Two Brushes” by the two Utagawa. Enjoy “Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido” depicted by two Eshi (painters) who represent the Utagawa style of the late Edo era.
