About this artwork

The Plum Garden at Kameido is one of Utagawa Hiroshige’s most recognizable designs, because it was famously copied by Vincent van Gogh in 1887. It stands out from other works of the time due to its innovative composition—an extreme close-up of the tree—as well as unexpected colors, especially the reddish sky.
