Ando Utagawa Hiroshige "Figures in Snow"

Ando Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858), Figures in Snow, no date, woodblock print, 9 11/16 x 6 5/8 inches. Brigham Young University Museum of Art, 1993.

The Japanese master Hiroshige captures the feeling of winter with delicacy and charm. The lively figures invite the viewer to create their own narrative, perhaps even imagine themselves in this scene, as the soft snow shower flutters down around them.
