Ando Hiroshige: 1797-1858
Born in Edo (Tokyo), his father was a samurai and firewarden. Both his parents died when he was twelve. At age fourteen he was accepted to the famous Utagawa painting school, and in 1812 he formally took the name Utagawa Hiroshige. Renowned for his stunning landscape prints, he was very successful in Japan and in Europe. He was one of the most prolific of the Ukiyo-e artists.
Katsushika Hokusai: 1760—1849
Painter and printmaker born near Edo. Created about 30,000 highly original works, of which his landscapes are most famous. He was influenced by Dutch and French pastoral landscapes, bringing perspective and shading to Japanese landscapes. Often credited with introducing the serenity of nature to Japanese art, and was among the first to paint the common people in his woodblocks.
