Ōta Memorial Museum of Art, 1-10-10 Jingumae, Shibuya City, Tokyo

Digging up forgotten and overlooked ukiyo-e

Ukiyo-e works continued to be made up to the end of the Meiji period, around the turn of the 20th century. Ukiyo-e of that period were not highly esteemed, and are therefore rarely displayed by museums. This piece showcases around 220 pieces from the collection of Toshihiko Isao, a western-style painter and collector of ukiyo-e. Included are works by well-known figures such as Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (considered the last ukiyo-e master) and Kobayashi Kiyochika, but also the generation that followed them. This event showcases the “last ukiyo-e” by 37 artists, who, in this period of great upheaval, sought out a new approach to ukiyo-e. *Some pieces will be replaced during the exhibition period.
