Ukiyoe artists from the 1800s Japan demonstrated superb woodblock-carving techniques and created compelling prints that are internationally recognized.
Works by master ukiyoe artists that are rarely shown in North America will be on display at the West Vancouver Museum and the Nikkei National Museum in Burnaby.
Over a hundred ukiyoe prints have been selected from the private collection of Mr. Shinichi Inagaki in Tokyo, Japan for these exhibitions.
Many of Mr. Inagaki’s prints from the Edo (1603-1868) to Meiji (1868-1912) periods depict parodies, puzzling expressions of humour, playful interpretation of mythologies and twisted ghost stories, as well as the everyday charm of ordinary people and fascinating Japanese traditions.
