Utagawa Hiroshige One Hundred Famous Views of Edo

Suijin Woods and Masaki on the Sumida River Banks

This print reproduced here shows a compositional plan still more compound than any prints in this series. The artist’s eyes have already been brought up to the top of a small hill. The cherry branches extending this way are shown large in close view, then travelers on the road and a shrine (perhaps Mimeguri) in pine grove in shallow bird's-eye view; the eyes are then raised again to see the stream of Sumida River and the distant view of Mt.Tsukuba in front-view level-distance method of observation. Such a composition as this has no similar example in the series, making it a unique piece.
