A dragon in clouds was a popular motif in Japan that came from a Chinese tradition of ink painting. Hiroshige’s subdued palette and painterly treatment of the subject clearly reflect this origin. The black and red abstracted design of the clouds highlights the menacing head and ferocious claws of the dragon. Although these mythical creatures appear powerful and fearsome, they are considered to be auspicious signs of wealth and good fortune.

Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese, 1797-1858), Dragon in Clouds, ca. 1835, color woodcut, bequest of John H. Van Vleck, 1980.1853
