Artist Statement

Having studied under Ando Hiroshige, it comes as no surprise that Utagawa Hiroshige uses a similar landscape style and composition for his piece, Kites of Fukuroi. This scene is from a series by Hiroshige II, One Hundred Famous Views in the Various Provinces (occasionally translated as "in the Country" or "in Japan"). The colors in this piece are so lush and the bare legs of the kite-flyers so alluring that it leaves the viewer in breathtaking anticipation of the warmth and joy of spring.

Utagawa Hiroshige

Born Suzuki Chinpei, Utagawa Hiroshige studied under and was adopted by Ando Hiroshige. During his tutelage, he went by the art-name of “Shigenobu”. When Ando Hiroshige died in 1858, Shigenobu married his daughter, Otatsu, and adopted the identity of Hiroshige, more commonly referred to as Hiroshige II. The marriage was dissolved seven years later, after which Hiroshige II moved away from Edo and resumed using the name Shigenobu.
