Traditional Japanese Woodblock snow scene
'Hiroshige Ando (1797-1858) is often considered, along with Hokusai, the greatest Japanese printmaking artist in the 19th century. He is best known for his landscape prints. His use of perspective is known to have influenced Western impressionists such as Van Gogh and Claude Monet. A woodblock print from the Edo period showing two figures walking on a bridge over the water towards a dwelling. One hatted figure carries a bundle over the shoulder, the other carries a parcel. This print forms part of my own private collection of original woodblock prints.'
