Annotation: Hiroshige

I hadn’t come across this artist before, but became really interested in his work the more that I researched it.

I chose this particular print because it was on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Given what I have said on previous annotations, where I was unable to see the original work, I thought that it would be best to choose an image that I had seen at first hand. Although it is not a typical landscape of Hiroshige’s it does still give a good example of his work and I feel I gained much more from the exercise by being able to see the original rather than studying it from photographs.
