Ukiyo-e Tales: Stories from the Floating World
This exhibition will take us back to the golden age of ukiyo-e and will feature works by the most important artists of the late 18th and up to the mid-19th century. We will focus predominately on images of beauties and the layers of meaning and stories that are conveyed via subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) clues found in the compositions.
