Collection: Views of Tokyo - Prints Exhibition

Sotheran’s are very pleased to now be able to showcase this wonderful exhibition of woodblock prints focused around scenes from Tokyo, previously known as Edo up until the end of the shogunate in 1868.

Kyoto had been the Imperial Capital of Japan before this was moved to Tokyo which if translated means “Eastern Capital.”

We have a large collection of prints by Ando Hiroshige (items 8-30), as well as those by his son in law Hiroshige II (items 6 –7).

Hiroshige is an artist we really like and his prints have become increasingly collectable in recent years.

My personal favourite of these is the “Dam on the Otonashi River” (item 14) with bathers enjoying a swim.

There is a lovely print by Hiroshi Yoshida titled “Edo Castle” (item 41) which is one of the finest we have seen by this artist and shows brilliantly the reflection of the ladies and castle in the rain.

Hiroshi’s son Toshi is also represented in the exhibition with a selection of posthumous edition prints (items 42-45).
