From 23rd Septmber 2023 to 21st January 2024
STRADE E STORIE. PAESAGGI DA HOKUSAI A HIROSHIGE
The new exhibition at Bagnacavallo‘s Museo Civico delle Cappuccine is part of the three-year program dedicated to Landscape that will end in 2024.
The exhibition shows the works of great masters of engraving from the Far East, such as Hokusai and Hiroshige, exploring the history of the ukiyo-e woodcut technique.
The term ukiyo-e, which literally means “pictures of the floating world,” describes the artistic genre that flourished between the 17th and 19th centuries that, in the beginning, showed the landscape as a background to the characters portrayed, letting it become the main subject from the 1830s onward, with the publication of Hokusai’s Thirty-six Views of Fuji and Hiroshige’s Fifty-three Stations of Tōkaidō.
Nearly 120 works are on display, including two important triptychs and several original volumes containing the complete series, flanked by a number of objects: tsuba, inrō and a precious kimono decorated with images inspired by ukiyo-e.
