The works of Japanese printmaker, Utagawa Hiroshige, will go on show in Winchester next month,

Hiroshige's master series, Fifty-three stations of the T?kaid? Road, which was first published in 1833, is a depiction of the journey between Kyoto and Edo, the former name of Tokyo.

Known to have been an influence on other artists such as Monet and van Gogh, the series showcases Hiroshige's typical strong outlines, unusual compositions and flat expanses of bold colour.

The touring exhibition ‘Hiroshige’s Japan’, on loan from the Ashmolean Museum at the University of Oxford, will visit The Gallery at Winchester Discovery Centre between March 7 and May 24. The exhibition is free.

The family of a Winchester man murdered in India have launched an appeal - to find his killers. Andrew Rodick's body was found wrapped in a carpet and dumped in a street in Delhi last April.

His family say they want to raise money for a reward to kickstart the police search for the killers of Andrew who was 39 years old. And some of the proceeds would go to help his three children now aged seven and twins aged ten.
