Collection: Hashimoto Sadahide

Perhaps best known for his prints of Yokohama's landscape, Hashimoto Sadahide (1807 - c. 1878) drew on his mapmaking and topography background to accurately portray daily life and commerce in 19th century Japan. His works are characteristic of the time period that saw the arrival of the first Westerners to Japan after the opening of country by Commodore Perry in 1854.
