Hiroshige Calendar, Wall, Pomegranate
The master printmaker Utagawa Hiroshige practiced a sort of perceptual jujitsu on his viewers: Many landscapes in his series "One Hundred Views of Edo [Tokyo]" are framed by a large foreground surface or object that is not the print's true subject; instead, the intruder leads the eye beyond to the picture's distant focus. From "One Hundred Views," images here include Bamboo Yards, Kyobashi Bridge; Moon-Viewing Point; Scattered Pines, Tone River; and the ethereal Fukugawa Lumberyards. This 2006 Wall calendar was published by Pomegranate.
