- Curator's comments
- The artist has commented: "This was inspired by our visit to Tate Modern. I saw this view from the top floor of the museum. It immediately reminded me of a print by Hiroshige, ‘Sudden Shower at Ōhashi Bridge, Atake’ from [his series] One Hundred Famous Views of Edo. When Hiroshige made the print, about 160 years ago, there were no high buildings like Tate Modern and no helicopters from which one could look down to see such a scene. I was impressed with the composition that he devised. So my print is dedicated to Hiroshige. As you may realize, [in his print] there is not only a sudden shower but also ‘a sky hidden by the mist’, as in London."
