Hiroshige. A Journey into the Woodblock Print

Hiroshige left behind some 5,800 works – primarily colour woodblock prints and 120 picture books. His work, which had such a decisive influence on European art of the 19th and 20th centuries, continues to inspire and delight people all over the world.

Its main theme – for the first time – is a presentation of two phenomenal female literary artists, Murasaki Shikibu, the novelist, and Ono no Komachi, who wrote exquisite love poetry. Thus, image and word coexist and interact in the show.


The exhibition showcases a selection of historical and contemporary examples of narration from areas including manga, anime, video games and ukiyo-e woodblock prints, focusing on the exploration of ‘background’ in the broadest sense.
