Edo Pop Japanese prints

Lady Lever Art Gallery
Port Sunlight Village

Tel: 0151 478 4136

Utagawa Kunichika. Fire Brigade Standard Bearer 1871: collection Frank Milner


The Lady Lever Art Gallery's latest exhibition brings to life the energy and spirit of the city of Edo and its people through fifty woodblock prints.

Discover 19th century Edo (now Tokyo) through these vibrant and colourful images that reveal the popular culture of the city. 

Visitors to the exhibition can explore an intriguing world of urban celebrities, actors, sports champions, fashion icons and villains, as depicted by leading printmakers such as Kuniyoshi, Kunisada and Kunichika, the last great master of the Kabuki actor print. The prints depict a time of great change and modernisation, when Western influence was starting to be felt alongside traditional Japanese culture.

On loan from the private collection of art historian and writer, Frank Milner, the show also features a Hokusai print from the same series as his famous image, the Great Wave.

The exhibition is accompanied by a series of themed talks, events and activities.
