Utagawa Hiroshige One Hundred Views of Famous Places in Edo

Ferry at Sakai

The Ukiyo-e is printed on Echizen kizuki hosho washi (a unique kind of Japanese paper) handmade by Ichibei Iwano, a living national treasure. This makes the vivid colors and the soft, warm textures of woodcut prints come to life.

The print, especially, shows a quiet rural sight with white herons feeling among reeds. Despite its bird’s-eye view composition it shows the herons in oversized dimensions*, with the background landscape viewed through this flock of birds. (*Translator’s note: In Japanese bird’s eye view compositions, the upper part is a near sight, a sort of psychological perspective). It typifies the artist’s characteristic compositional plan, which appears frequently in this Edo Hyakkei set. The atenashi bokashi* of bero-ai** drawn boldly through the center of the river, found in the early impressions of this design, is cleverly suggestive of the depth of water and also serves as a successful accent of the color scheme.
