Dear Art Educators,

This online exhibit is featured in Scout Report http://scout.wisc.edu/

Hiroshige's One Hundred Famous Views of Edo
http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/exhibitions/online/edo/
Online exhibit is ongoing.

From the web site:
"Hiroshige's One Hundred Famous Views of Edo, actually composed of 118
splendid woodblock landscape and genre scenes of
mid-nineteenth-century Tokyo, is one of the greatest achievements of
Japanese art. In order to protect these very special prints, the
Museum can only physically display them periodically, but they are
presented here in this ongoing online exhibition. The series,
reproduced online in its entirety, contains many of Hiroshige's best
loved and most extraordinary prints. It is a celebration of the style
and world of Japan's finest cultural flowering at the end of the
shogunate."

The site contains an essay on Hiroshige and his life
and a very helpful primer titled "How to Read a Japanese Woodblock Print".
You can browse the images by seasons or key words.
