The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido (Kyoka Edition): #52 Ishibe

Andô Hiroshige

View of an interior of an inn, with tatami-matted rooms and sliding doors. The rooms have doors open. Men and women wearing yukata are resting in one of the rooms. The other room seems to be a public bathroom, with one man taking a bath in the deep soaking tubs, and the other sitting on the stool to put on his clothes.

Blue-and-white jar with floral and leaf design

Artist Unknown, Hizen ware, Japan

A medium size, well potted jar with round shoulder and shorter neck. Inside is not totally glazed. On the body, pine, bamboo, and plum trees are finely painted with blue underglaze. Then a translucent glaze is applied, which turns into milky, white color. It has three floral decorations on the shoulder; the decoration is originated in functional elements of “ears” to which ropes were tied for transportation. The neck has a band of double lines and spray design of peony flowers and leaves. The rim of the neck is unglazed. The foot is unglazed; eye is glazed. Some imperfections of glaze are seen toward the bottom. Glaze is scraped off on one part. Many speckles on the surface.

Landscape (Untitled)

Herman Herzog

This painting depicts a lush green countryside with an expanse of blue sky. It shows a hillside overlooking a small lake. There is a vista of fields and hills that extends beyond the lake to the horizon.

In the foreground, a woman wearing a long dress and a bonnet and carrying a walking stick and basket, walks toward the viewer along a dirt path. The path runs from a building on the far left toward the bottom of the painting. The vegetation is painted in sharp detail in dark tones of green and brown.

In the right half of the composition, there is a scene of a distant village and farms viewed through the trees on the edge of the hillside. In contrast to the shadowy wooded area, the view is bathed in bright sunlight. There is a lone bird in flight in the light blue sky that fills the top half of the painting.

Hawk

Artist Unknown, Japan

In this painting, the hawk perches on the base of a tree, gripping the knotted bark with its talons. Its back is presented to the viewer, bringing attention the impressive patterning and feather detail. Arching its head to the right to reveal a keen awareness of its surroundings coupled with a razor sharp glare, it appears ready to take off after unsuspecting prey.

One of a pair of six-fold screens

Attributed Kanô Tan'yû

This six-fold screen, a half of a pair, is meant to represent six of the twelve months of the year, with keen attention paid to the birds and flowers associated with each. Although this screen bears Kano Tan’yu’s signature, it was probably created by his studio or by followers working in this famous artist’s style.

Edo Meisho: Gotenyama, Cherry-blossom Viewing

Andô Hiroshige II

People are appreciating the beauty of the cherry blossoms and some are having picnics under the trees. Below the highland where the cherry trees and the people are, the land leads to the fields and hills in the distance. The sky appears to be red along the edge of the hill, suggesting the time as early evening.
