Hiroshige: an exceptional collection of prints presented at the Guimet Museum  

For the first time in France, the Guimet museum is bringing together a unique collection of prints by Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) designed to decorate fans. Fans were common consumer items and were most often thrown away, making them very rare. From the Georges Leskowicz collection, one of the finest collections of Japanese prints, these works of art were made between the 1830s and 1850s. They are among the most elaborate of the artist's work, one of the last great Japanese artists of the Edo period (1603-1868). These fan leaves reveal the graphic inventiveness and great diversity of Hiroshige's work.
