KUNIYOSHI Show: UKIYO-e Artist of the Edo
September 11, 2015 - October 18, 2015¥200 – ¥400
Utagawa Kunisyoshi, Kaidoumaru c.1836
One of the last great masters of the ukiyo-e style of woodblock prints and painting, active at the end of the Edo Period, Kuniyoshi Utagawa (1797-1861) is known for his eclectic, novel and humorous works inspired by a wide range of subjects. Ukiyo-e exhibitions can sometimes be a little dry when they lack adequate explanation, but this show of around 200 of his representative works has more than enough drama and humor to keep even the casual viewer interested.
