Sandberg Hiroshiges Regnskyar Grey 609-09Sandberg Sandberg
Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) is the Japanese artist known for his beautiful woodblock prints of landscapes, and his unbeatable mastery in depicting rain. Our wallpaper shows his painting of pouring rain at the Nihonbashi Bridge. In the background is the sacred Mt Fuji, which, in 2003, gained a place on the Unesco World Heritage List. We fell for the beautiful rain clouds that exude an extraordinary sense of tranquillity and beauty. Japanese woodblock prints were not introduced to Europe until the 19th century when Japan was opened up to commerce with the outside world. The exciting compositions, the unique motifs, and the humour of the pictures had a great effect on Western artists. At the beginning of the 20th century, the American architect, F. Lloyd Wright, arranged a great exhibition that featured Hiroshige’s pictures. In the exhibition catalogue, he characterized the Japanese woodblock print as the most important contribution to the world of art. The Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg, the foremost Swedish museum of design, has a collection of about 350 Japanese woodblock prints. In fact, it was in their archives that we found this picture by Hiroshige. Dimension 4,05×2,70 m. Feature wall.
