Place:
Tokyo -- Maps, Pictorial -- Japan
Date:
between 1820 and 1824
Scope and Contents:
The Tōkaidō was the road extending from Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto and passing through the provinces bordering on the Pacific Ocean. The map is a bird's-eye view of the region. It is decorated with sketches of houses, fields, boats, and so forth.
Biographical / Historical:
The painter and printmaker Hokusai was known by his principal gō (nom de plume) from 1797 to 1820; by Katsushika from ca. 1807 to 1824; and by Taitō from 1811 to 1820. "Katsushika zen Hokusai" is translated to mean "Katsushika known previously as Hokusai." The date of the map is suggested, therefore, to be between 1820 and 1824.
