Discovering the ukiyo-e of the Meiji period lost in history
Many people understand ukiyo-e as a culture of the Edo period. However, ukiyo-e was continuously produced until the end of the Meiji period, in the beginning of the 20th century. Since their artistic value are disregarded, they are rarely introduced in museums today. This exhibition will discover 220 pieces of ukiyo-e from the Meiji period lost in history, from the collection of a painter and ukiyo-e collector, Isao Toshihiko.
