Ends in 20 days
Closed Today (Monday)

In the Edo Period (17th Century), after the end of the Warring States era, the notion that people should enjoy life began to spread. Daily life became the subject of paintings, commoners began to seek art and artists began to engage in a variety of activities. More than anything, the people depicted in the pictures are full of an energy looking towards the future. From genre paintings in the early modern era to ukiyo-e will be displayed in this exhibit, including some ukiyo-e that have never before had a public exhibition.
