Moon, Swallows and Peach Blossoms by Ando, Hiroshige by hokusai_art

Gekka momo ni tsubakura

Print shows two sparrows with peach blossoms and a full moon. Born in Edo, Japan, Hiroshiges family name was Tokitaro, but he adopted the name of his mentor as per the custom of the time. His first work was a sketch of a procession done at the age of ten, and earned him the title of a prodigy. In 1828, Hiroshige began his own studio, but eventually moved to Kyoto to produce landscapes. His prints became very popular and emulated upon his return to Edo.
