Description

Send snowy greetings with Utagawa Hiroshige holiday cards that celebrate the tranquil Japanese countryside. At the time these images were first published more than 150 years ago, Japan was in transition, and the dates for these works straddle the years that marked the opening of Japan to the West after centuries of seclusion. Four of Hiroshige's iconic woodblock scenes are depicted in this boxed set of 20 cards.

Museum Story

The Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the Smithsonian's National Museum of Asian Art, opened to the public in 1923, a gift to the nation from Charles Lang Freer. The Gallery contains an extensive collection of oriental art, prints, sculpture and silk panels, as well as a major group of 19th and 20th century American works.
