Snowy view of Holland



Although the primary reason for the Dutch going to Japan from around 1600 onwards was to trade, they often brought gifts with them in order to endear themselves to local rulers including the shogun. Among the gifts they presented to Japanese were telescopes, clocks and peep-boxes. Peep-boxes were devices into which the viewer could peer and see different views that were on cards inserted in the box. Of particular interest is the fact that the pictures on the cards often gave the viewer a sense of the depth of a scene. This was a result of the use of single-point perspective, to which the Japanese were introduced in works of art imported by the Dutch (although earlier arrivals such as the Portuguese probably also brought such paintings to Japan). 
In the late eighteenth century, there was a particular craze for all things Dutch including these peep-boxes. The above picture was used in such a device. In the Japanese inscription in the right-hand margin one can read Oranda yukimi no zu in kanji with a katakana gloss. Oranda, in fact derived from the Portuguese word for the country came to stand not just for Holland, but for things foreign in general. The text means ‘Snowy View of Holland’. One can perhaps see a little snow in the picture, but it seems to owe more to somewhere in East or South-East Asia rather than the Low Countries.

  25. HOW I RECEIVED A LOAN FROM SHAW LOCKWOOD.

    I am Shaw Lockwood by name, I want to use this medium to alert all loan applicants to be very careful because there are scams everywhere. A few months ago I was very nervous and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders.

    I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Mr. Steve Morrison (a God fearing) who lent me a loan of 145,000 euros in 72 hours of work without any stress. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was not to cry anymore because I will get my loan from this company and I have also made the right decision to contact them. I filled out the loan application form and proceeded with everything that was requested of me. and to my surprise they gave me the loan.

    If you need any type of loan, contact him now through: unitedloanservice@yahoo.com

    I am using this medium to alert all loan seekers through the hell I passed into the hands of those fraudulent lenders.

    Thank you United Loan Service for your help.
