Weezer Pinkerton / Hiroshige Night Snow At Kambara Mani

I love this artwork for two reasons. 1. It's gorgeous 2. It's the inspiration for the cover art of Weezer's Pinkerton album! :)

Pinkerton came out in 1996. It is an amazing album. The artwork is by Hiroshige. The title of the piece is "Kambara Yoru no Yuki" or "Night Snow at Kambara." The original artwork is in the Ukiyo-e genre. They used woodblocks to print their designs.
