Hiroshige (1797-1858), Japanese painter and printmaker. Ando Hiroshige was born in Edo (now Tokyo). The prints of Hokusai are said to have first kindled in him the desire to become an artist, and he entered the studio of Utagawa Toyohiro, a renowned painter, as an apprentice.
From 1811 to about 1830 Hiroshige created prints of traditional subjects such as young women and actors. During the next 15 years he became a landscape artist, reaching a peak of success and achievement in 1833 when his masterpiece, the print series Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido, was published. He maintained this high level of craftmanship in other travel series, including Celebrated Places in Japan and Sixty-nine Stations on the Kiso Highway.
The work he did during the third period, the last years of his life, is sometimes of lesser quality, as he seems to have hurriedly met the demands of popularity. He died of cholera on October 12, 1858, in Edo.
