Compete in Beauty: World of Ukiyo-e Paintings from the Hikaru Museum Collection
This event has ended.
While woodblock Ukiyo-e is widely known as a Japanese art, there is also a form of Ukiyo-e called “Nikuhitsu Ukiyo-e” that is hand-painted on silk or paper. These vibrantly colorful works often depict beautiful women with ornate hair in fine dress. This exhibition features a selection of 111 works dating to the 17th through 19th centuries from the collection of the Hikaru Museum in Gifu Prefecture. This extensive collection includes works by artists from Kyoto and Osaka, some of whom have few works currently in existence.
