Artist profile: Hiroshige – Snow

Every month, I profile an artist who inspires my own art,
in several segments.

 
Hiroshige made some beautiful prints of snow-laden landscapes. Here are my favorites, starting with the one I ended with last week because it’s super pretty!

Drum Bridge and Setting Sun Hill, Meguro (c. 1858)
