Ukiyo-e of the Late Edo and Meiji Periods

150 years ago, Japan experienced historical changes, from the downfall of the Edo shogunate to the establishment of the Meiji Government. Ukiyo-e artists who were active from the end of the Edo Period to the early Meiji Period portrayed social changes such as the Boshin War and westernization, and explored new forms of art by accepting Western styles. 2018 is the 150th year from the Meiji Restoration. In its commemoration, we introduce 150 pieces of ukiyo-e produced from the end of the Edo Period to the Meiji Period (the exhibits will be changed between the first term and the second term). Please enjoy the rapidly changing ukiyo-e, mirroring the turbulence from the end of the Edo Period into the Meiji Period.
