This exhibition showcases more than 30 iconic prints by 19th-century Japanese master Ando (Utagawa) Hiroshige. These stunningly beautiful works from Hiroshige's masterpiece One Hundred Famous Views of Edo (ca. 1856-58) are drawn from the extensive collection of Professor Arthur R. Miller, UR '56, '08 (LLD). They depict the artist’s nostalgic response to the rapid changes to mid-century Edo, now Tokyo, after Japan opened to the West during the mid-1800s.

It is presented in honor of the members of the University of Rochester's George Eastman Circle.
