Ando Hiroshige (1797 – 1858) was one of the most famous Japanese Ukiyo-e artists. Inspired by Hokusai. Hiroshige originally depicted traditional subjects such as young women and actors, and later won fame as a landscape artist, competing for the same customers who admired Hokusai's art. Hiroshige’s masterpiece, Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido, often used an unusual striking colors and realistic depth. Tourism was becoming popular, and Hiroshige drew upon his own travels to create an astounding 5,400 prints.
