Hiroshige
never heard of Goethe
and yet... and yet...

I love Hiroshige.
I'm lucky enough to have an ukiyo-e by his adopted son, Hiroshige II. It shows hunters capturing wild geese in nets in Iyo province on Shikoku, my favorite place in Japan.

Yes, it is amazing how so many wonderfully creative people, unbeknownst to one another, all seem to be singing a similar song.
