This event has ended.
This exhibition focuses on the prints of Goyo Hashiguchi (1881–1921) and Shinsui Ito (1898–1972), both of whom had relationships with the Ukiyo-e artist Hasui Kawai (1883–1957). Hashiguchi and Ito both created what were called “new prints” using color and similar techniques as Ukiyo-e during the Taisho and early Showa eras. Their work went beyond the expressions of Ukiyo-e and into the realm of modern art while continuing the legacy of Ukiyo-e. Forty examples of their “Ukiyo-e Modern” works are on display.
