Utagawa Hiroshige III learned from both masters Utagawa Hiroshige I and Utagawa Hiroshige II. His imagery of Western dress, Western architecture and new steam locomotives juxtaposed with native Japanese scenery landed him among the top five in a 1880 list of ukiyo-e artists. This attention to Western motifs was heavily influenced by his predecessors.
