Modern Tokyo Times
The Japanese artist Utagawa Fusatane was active from approximately 1850 until the late 1880s. Accordingly, Fusatane belongs to the late Edo Period – and the dynamics of the Meiji Period (1868-1912).
During his informative period, he studied under Utagawa Sadafusa. However, the exact dates of Fusatane’s birth and death remain open to speculation.
Fusatane focused on various ukiyo-e themes. This includes bijin-ga (beautiful women), fūzokuga (customs and manners), landscapes, and other themes.
His landscapes show the influence of Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858).
The three delightful prints in this article belong to the untitled series of Eight Views of Ômi.
Fusatane – while not belonging to the creme de la creme of Utagawa printmakers – still produced lovely prints concerning various ukiyo-e themes.
