Utagawa Hiroshige Enumeration of Flowers in the Four Seasons

Morning-Glories

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.

This depiction of multicolored morning-glories and a bamboo shoot with a grasshopper perched on it is one of Hiroshige's finest fan prints. In many ways the print conveys a suggestion of ephemerality; the summer fan was intended to be used for one season and then discarded, morning-glories soon wilt and die after an initial blaze of beauty, and the grasshopper's life is also very brief.
