About shipping cost


Year: 2021 Medium: Pigmented ink on silver paper Dimension: 30.9 x 21.6 x 0.3 cm / 12.2 x 8.5 x 0.1 in Signature: Hand-signed by artist, back This work includes a certificate of authenticity, and black frame. Inspired by Hiroshige Utagawa The title means "Ueno(no)Okachimachi(landscape)". It depicts a night view that combines both modern and traditional aspects of Tokyo. Hiroshige painted several "One hundred Famous Views of Edo" featuring Ueno, but Ameya Yokocho (Ameyoko), the subject of this work, did not exist in his time, as it was a shopping district created from the scorched earth of Tokyo during the Pacific War. This work is one of a series of night views of the city ("Dogenzaka Udagawa," "Shinjuku Godzilla Road," etc.) that cannot be depicted in Hiroshige's time. タイトルは「上野(の)御徒町(の風景)」という意味です。東京の近代的な部分と伝統的な部分を併せ持った夜景として描かれています。広重は上野を題材に「名所江戸百景」を幾つか描いていますが、この作品のアメヤ横丁(アメ横)は太平洋戦争時に焦土と化した東京から生まれた商店街であり、広重の時代にはありません。広重の時代では描けない街の夜景シリーズ(「Dogenzaka Udagawa」や「Shinjuku Godzilla Road」など)の1作です。
