    Kanshinsei: A Collection

    08 Jan 2021 – 06 Jul 2021

    A carefully curated collection of Japanese yakusha-e (actors paintings), Sumi-e (Ink wash) and ukiyo-e (woodblock prints). Originally created between the latter half of the 18th century and the early 20th century, the collections from Itō Jakuchū, Katsushika Hokusai, Kōno Bairei, Ohara Koson, Toyohara Kunichika and Watanabe Seitei are curated of some of their lesser known works. All Kanchinsei prints are printed on Awagami Wash Bamboo paper. Framed prints are offered behind glass, using conservation mounting materials and sustainable wood frames.
