.....maybe of some interest? (particularly while the IBC is down!!)
Follow the link below for a comprehensive catalogue of the work of ANDO HIROSHIGE.
With an output of an estimated 5,400 woodblock prints, Ando Hiroshige was one of the prolific artists of ukiyo-e.
Ando Hiroshige was born in Edo (Tokyo) as the son of a samurai and fireman. At the age of twelve, both his parents died. Two years later, in 1811, the young Hiroshige received a chance to join the famous Utagawa painting school. He became most renowned when he changed from the traditional figurative to landscape pictures and his most famous work includes the '100 views of Edo'.
There are some gorgeous prints illustrating a variety of scenes from Japan in the 1800's
(and naturally there are many with trees in!!)
I find them very evocative images.
I hope you find them as interesting as I do?
