【Private View】A HISTORY OF THE JAPANESE PRINT
Thu 4 May 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
Due to popular demand, and unfortunately limited space, we had to make the opening night event PRIVATE.
Only people with an Eventbrite ticket will be allowed in.
Tiger Tanuki presents a unique sales exhibition, tracing the history of the Japanese print from the classic ukiyo-e of the Edo period (1615-1867) to the modern shin hanga and sosaku hanga prints of the 20th century.
The exhibition features original works by renowned artists such as Utagawa Kunisada, probably the most popular and prolific ukiyo-e artist; Kawase Hasui, considered one of the most important Japanese landscape artists of the 20th century, and Ay-O, also known as the ‘rainbow artist’, who represented Japan at the Venice biennale in 1966.
