*This exhibition was canceled to prevent the spread of new coronavirus infection, but it will be held again this time. In this exhibition, we will introduce the woodblock prints, which are the essence of world-class Japanese art, and their modern development. It is no exaggeration to say that woodblock printing was a technology that was responsible for almost all of Japanese printing technology before modern times. It can be said that the modern woodblock prints have received new stimuli and have evolved and deepened further since the Western printing and printing technology were accepted at the end of the Edo period. In this exhibition, we will focus on the largest publisher of Meiji Nishiki-e, Obayashi Sonbei, and the new publisher, Doi Print Shop, and the two publishers, and will continuously pursue the activities from the Meiji to Taisho Showa eras. Introducing two publishers who challenged new expressions while inheriting the modern Ukiyo-e tradition, the artists who were active under that publisher, and their various works. Related project "Creating a ceramic painting by Okura Toen" In commemoration of this exhibition, with the cooperation of Okura Toen in Totsuka-ku, Yokohama, the production and exhibition of the Nishiki-e ceramic paintings exhibited in this exhibition. Is planning. Okura Toen is a Western tableware maker that celebrated its 100th anniversary last year, and was founded by Obe Sonbei, who will be featured in this exhibition. The motif of the porcelain paintings this time is the flower and bird painting "Yuki Nakataka and Shirasagi" produced by Sonbei for export. This is a Nishiki-e with an impressive contrast of vivid colors such as white and red, green and light blue.
