Hiroshige Ando
Birth: 1797
Death: 1858

Painter. Generally known as "Hiroshige," he was born in Edo (Tokyo) as a member of the Tanaka samurai family and subsequently adopted by the Ando family. He studied under Toyokuni Utagawa and Toyohiro Utagawa, taking the name "Hiroshige" in 1911, while his mentors allowed him to take their Utagawa name as well. He developed images of flowers sand birds that became very popular. Later, publisher Shozo Kawaguchi ordered a series of ten views of Edo, which were printed with a limited color blend of blue and pink, with touches of brown and green. He subsequently painted several well known works, including "Tokaiso gojusan-tsugi (The Fifty-Three Stages of the Tokaido)," "Eight Views of Omi," "Ten Views of Kyoto," "Views of Sixity-nine Famous Sites," "One Hundred Views of Edo" and "Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji." He died during a cholera epidemic after having completed over 10,000 works of art (not including book illustrations). Among his few disciples were two adoptive sons and a third artist who adopted the name Hiroshige." He also influenced the work of Kiyochika Kobayashi and Hiroshi Yoshida. (bio by: Warrick L.
