About

This stunning new exhibition of prints by Toyohara Kunichika (1843-1900) is an exciting follow up of the gallery’s 2017 popular exhibition Edo-Pop.

Kunichika was one of the most important 19th-century print makers in Japan. Born in Edo (present day Toyko), Kunichika was trained by Kunisada, the leading print maker of the time, and went on to be a highly original master in his own right. Kunichika embraced modern subjects and his prints reflected the great social and political change in Japan at time. Best known for his depictions of the Kabuki theatre, capturing the drama and excitement of scenes from popular plays and famous actors, this exhibition, drawn from a private collection, is a beautiful must-see, and the first outside Japan to focus on the work of Kunichika.
