"The exhibition ‘Approaching the Horizon: Important Japanese Prints from the Collection of Brewster Hanson’ at Joan B. Mirviss offers artworks by some of the foremost masters of the medium. More than sixty prints from Hanson’s collection will be offered for the first time, including works by Katsushika Hokusai, Keisai Eisen and Utagawa Hiroshige – whose series Views of the Sixty-odd Provinces includes ‘The Whirlpool at Naruto, Awa Province’ (oban tate-e). Hanson, who lived in Geneva for more than fifty years, was able to complete his collections of prints from Hiroshige’s iconic Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road and Sixty-nine Stations of the Kisokaido, among several others.
