Print developed from Utagawa Hiroshige’s Awa Province: Naruto Whirlpools (Awa, Naruto no fuha), 1855, from The Art Institute of Chicago’s collection.

In the 19th century, Japanese printmaking saw two concurrent trends: an intensification of color and a rise in the popularity of landscape images. Hiroshige’s daring color schemes formed fantastic landscapes that fueled worldwide demand for Japanese prints.
