Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861) is known for creating numerous striking or even bizarre ukiyo-e artworks during the late Edo to early Meiji periods in Japan. A variety of motives including samurai, the dead, beautiful women and satirical depictions of power were captured by the artist and his apprentices. The exhibition features approximately 150 such works, and tracks the transition and succession of ukiyo-e art.
