Sta­tion to sta­tion

Homes and Antiques Magazine - - MAILBOX -

I in­her­ited three Ja­panese paint­ings from my par­ents. My grandma had bought them in the 1920s from a house sale in Berk­shire. I am not sure if they are painted on silk or wood­block prints. I dis­cov­ered on the in­ter­net that they are from a se­ries of paint­ings called The Fifty- three Sta­tions of the Tokaido by Uta­gawa Hiroshige. I have been sub­scrib­ing to your mag­a­zine for years and I re­mem­ber see­ing some sim­i­lar paint­ings in one of your fea­ture homes around the late 1990s. I won­dered if any of your ex­perts could tell me any more about them? LISA PAGAN, DER­BYSHIRE
