Background information
Birth name Utagawa Hiroshige
Alias Andō Hiroshige, Ichiyūsai Hiroshige
Born 1797
Died October 12, 1858

Utagawa Hiroshige (歌川広重, born 1797 – died October 12, 1858) was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist, and the artist of the album artwork for Pinkerton. He is regarded as one of the last great artists in the tradition of ukiyo-e art. He was also referred to as Andō Hiroshige (安藤広重) (although this combination of a family name with an art name is irregular) and by the art name of Ichiyūsai Hiroshige (幽斎廣重). Pinkerton features a slighty modified version of his print Kambara yoru no yuki ("Night Snow at Kambara").
