Detail: Ukiyo-e colored the history of art of the Edo period. Generally, prints are its well-known form, but from the 17th to 19th centuries, many of the ukiyo-e artists not only made sketches for prints but also left original paintings that required engagement in every step of the production. This exhibition will approach the creative power of expressive techniques, which were unraveled by discoveries from conservation work of recent years. We hope that you will enjoy through this show, the brilliance of color, as well as the lively brushwork distinctive to hand painted ukiyo-e.
