Exhibition Overview

To commemorate the fifty-fifth anniversary of the Yamatane Museum of Art, we are delighted to present selected masterpieces of ukiyo-e printsand Edo-period paintings from the museum’s collection.

The museum’s ukiyo-e print collection includes a large number of superb works by the six giants of ukiyo-e, Suzuki Harunobu, Torii Kiyonaga, Kitagawa Utamaro, Tōshūsai Sharaku, Katsushika Hokusai, and Utagawa Hiroshige I. Moreover, these prints are in an excellent state of preservation, earning the collection high regard among ukiyo-e specialists. This exhibition includes three of Sharaku’s highly individual bust-length actor portraits, Hokusai’s famous Red Fuji (Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji: Fine Wind, Clear Morning), the Hoeidō edition of Hiroshige’s Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō Road, and other treasures. This collection of signature works by these artists will be displayed in full, divided between the first and second halves of the exhibition period.

The Edo-period painting collection includes a comprehensive group of Rimpa School paintings, not surprisingly, since it was the encounter of our founder, Yamazaki Taneji, back when he was a young man working at a rice shop, with the work of Sakai Hōitsu, an Edo Rimpa artist, that inspired him to collect art.  This exhibit includes two works with painting by Tawaraya Sōtatsu and calligraphy by Hon’ami Kōetsu, Album of Paintings and Poems and Fragment of the Shinkokinshū Poetry Anthology: Deer, plus Sakai Hōitsu’s Autumn Plants and Quails (Important Art Object). Those Rimpa works are joined by Iwasa Matabei’s Court Ladies Enjoying Wayside Chrysanthemums (Important Cultural Property), a work by Itō Jakuchū, who has recently been attracting interest in Japan and abroad, literati paintings by Ike no Taiga and other artists, and Kanō School and Maruyama Shijō School paintings. The exhibition thus offers an opportunity to view highly distinctive masterpieces by artists of the major schools.

Edo-period paintings and ukiyo-e prints have come to be loved regardless of time or place. The ukiyo-e prints that influenced the Impressionists and the Rimpa and other Edo-period paintings admired for their decorative qualities have helped to spread Japanese culture throughout the world. The world-renowned artistry displayed in these works continues to glow. We hope you will enjoy experiencing the fascination of these ukiyo-e prints and Edo-period paintings from among our museum’s treasures.
