This event has ended.

How did ukiyo-e begin, how did it develop and why did it continue in its high popularity and demand up to modern times? This exhibition gathers over 200 renowned works of ukiyo-e, from internationally renowned museums such as the British Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, Honolulu Museum of Art, including prints and original paintings to introduce the early emergence of this influential art form. With its ability to capture new city life, the dynamic shifts of the age, with its simple yet strong presence, the beauty and skill of early ukiyo-e may be finely appreciated here. The exhibition traces ukiyo-e from early genre paintings through to the various early masters including Kiyonobu Torii (1664-1729) and Kiyomasu Torii, famed for their work in the Kabuki field, trickster Masanobu Okumura (1686-1764) and Toyonobu Ishikawa (1711-85), to the full color prints of Harunobu Suzuki(c.1725-70), with the first overview of early ukiyo-e in Japan.
