This event has ended.

The Edo-period Ukiyo-e painter Utamaro Kitagawa’s “Setsugekka” (Snow, Moon, Flowers) series is a hand-painted triptych. In 1989 it travelled to Paris for exhibition before its “Moon in Shinagawa” and “Flowers in Yoshiwara” were purchased by American museums. Meanwhile, the third painting, “Fukagawa in the Snow,” returned to Japan, but from 1952 its whereabouts were unknown until it its rediscovery in 2012. This work was acquired by the Okada Museum of Art, which now presents it and “Flowers in Yoshiwara” together for the first time in Japan in 138 years. A full-sized detailed reproduction of “Moon in Shinagawa” is also exhibited.
