Utagawa Hiroshige

Wild Geese and Full Moon

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.

Hiroshige also actively worked in various genres of ukiyo-e not only in the landscapes. Especially he left many masterpieces of flowers and birds designed in a long and narrow tanzaku format. "Wild Geese and Full Moon" is one of them. It was used for a design of a Japanese stamp issued in 1949.
The large moon occupies the half of a screen with a perfect composition. The three geese flying gracefully from right to left provide an impressive sight and the cloud drawn beneath them, executed in skilled bokashi gradation, adds to the effect of perspective. The rich entirety of this print is typical of the idyllic sense of Hiroshige.
