People who have saved this event:



ICN gallery presents a series of three exhibitions that centres on the theme of ukiyo-e. Part 1 of the series serves as an introduction to ukiyo-e that will enable visitors to better understand its historical origins and influence on Japanese art. Ukiyo-e's bold compositions and vibrant colours also attracted European painters such as van Gogh and Monet, resulting in an unprecedented boom of Japonism. The 67 works being exhibited here shows a wide range of works from Edo period artists such as Hokusai and Kuniyoshi who were creating works in diverse genre ranging from beauties, kabuki, samurai, landscapes and caricatures. Cooperation: The Adachi Institute of Woodcut Prints and the Adachi Foundation for the Preservation of Woodcut Printing
