Regular Exhibition

Ukiyoe Masters of the Utagawa School—Kunisada, Hiroshige and Kuniyoshi

June 27 (Sat.), 2020 – September 6 (Sun.) (62 days)

The Utagawa School was the largest of the ukiyoe schools during the Edo Period, and its artists were popular not only in Edo (current Tokyo) but also in Kamigata (Osaka). This exhibition displays masterpieces featuring the subjects of women, scenery and swordsmen by the forerunners of the school: the founder Toyoharu, Toyokuni I, and the famous Hiroshige’s teacher Toyohiro, as well as the school’s top three stars: Kunisada (Toyokuni III), Hiroshige and Kuniyoshi. The exhibition also includes works by Ochiai Yoshiiku and Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, both of whom were taught by Utagawa Kuniyoshi between the late Edo and Meiji Periods, and works by Osaka local artists, Utagawa Hirosada and Utagawa Yoshiume.

*Guided tours are scheduled to be held four times during the exhibition period.
