Landscapes of Edo

Ukiyo-e Prints from the AGGV Collection

SEASON OPENER | SATURDAY, MARCH 9 | ALL DAY | ADMISSION BY DONATION

Landscapes of Edo: Ukiyo-e Prints from the AGGV’s Collection showcases key works from the AGGV’s extensive collection of Japanese prints. In the late 19th Century, leading artists such as Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) and Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) broadened the themes of the ukiyo-e genre, depicting the scenic landscapes of Edo, and portraying the life of common people. This exhibition features important prints by these two renowned ukiyo-e artists, alongside a rare complete set of Utagawa Hiroshige II’s (1826-1869) Forty-Eight Famous Views of Edo.

Organized in conjunction with Fiona Tan: Ascent and Quiet Nature: The Woodblock Prints of Walter J Phillips, the exhibition conveys the enduring influence of ukiyo-e in representations of the landscape.
