Mount Fuji has long been praised by poets and depicted by artists for its beautiful shape and sacred status.

Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858) created numerous views of Mount Fuji over the course of his career, depicting the mountain in different seasons and from a variety of viewpoints. This exhibition highlights prints from several different series and in different formats.
