Nihonbashi Bridge on Snow Morning

"Nihonbashi" literally means Japanese bridge and it is the famous bridge in the centre of Edo (now Tokyo).  This picture is a woodblock print in the ukiyo-e style and is one of a series "One Hunred Views of Edo" created in the 19th century by Hiroshige Ando.  Van Gogh copied two of this series: Flowering Plum Tree and Bridge in the Rain.

  1. I love the uniqueness of this one.

  2. Very interesting interpretation

  3. It's a lovely postcard. I want to imagine that those pinkness is because of cherry blossoms instead of the sun's light. ;-)

    Thanks also for the link to Van Gogh's paintings.

  4. Fantastic artwork! Don't you just love the old Japan?
