A History of the Japanese Print

4 May - 10 June 2017, London

Aqua Poesy VII

Tiger Tanuki presents a unique sales exhibition, tracing the history of the Japanese print from the classic ukiyo-e (‘pictures of the floating world’) 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 (1786-1865), probably the most popular and prolific ukiyo-e artist; Kawase Hasui (1883-1957), considered one of the most important Japanese landscape artists of the 20th century; and Ay-O (b. 1931), also known as the ‘rainbow artist’, who represented Japan at the Venice biennale in 1966.
