JAPANESE SEASON IN THE ISRAEL MUSEUM, JERUSALEM
The glamorous world of elegant courtesans and actors of the Kabuki Theater is vividly depicted in this exhibition of 50 ukiyo-e – pictures from the “Floating World,” a style that developed in 17th-century Japan. These images afford the viewer a glimpse into the luxury and drama of the Yoshiwara, the pleasure quarter of the capital Edo, where wealth could buy entertainment.
The works are from the collection of Prof. Jacob Pins, Jerusalem, which was gifted to the Museum in 2001.
