The work has been realized by Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige (Tokyo, 1797 - Tokyo, 1858), one of the last great ukiyo-e (“pictures of the floating world”) masters of the color woodblock print. His genius for landscape compositions was first recognized in the West by the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. His print series Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido (1833–34) is perhaps his finest achievement.

As a now recognized artist, he received numerous commissions for the design of colored woodcuts and series until his death. At the height of his work, the series "100 Famous Views of Edo" was created in the last two years of his life. Hiroshige exerted a decisive influence on European art in the 19th century and inspired artists such as Vincent van Gogh Utagawa Hiroshige "Yoshida, Toyokawa ôhashi" (Great Bridge over the Toyo River).
