Details

This outstanding exhibition catalogue deals with the changing face of Tokyo as depicted in Japanese prints from the Edo period through to the mid Showa era. This fascinating subject is bolstered even further by an outstanding selection of prints from all genres. Works by Hiroshige Ando, Kiyochika Kobayashi, Yamamoto Kanae, Tobari Kogan, Shunsen Natori, Oda Kazuma, Yoshida Hiroshi, Hasui Kawase, Shotei Takahashi, Shiro Kassamatsu, Hiratsuka Unichi, Koizumi Kishio, Fujimori Shizuo, Fujimaki Yoshio, Onchi Koshiro, Senpan Maekawa, Taninaka Yasunori, Shimizu Masahiro, and Ono Tadashige, among others, tell the tale of Edo’s transition into Tokyo, one of the world’s largest cities. This catalogue is most noteworthy for its illustrations of rarely seen pre-earthquake designs by Hasui, Shunsen, and Yoshida as well as scarce Sosaku Hanga designs by Onchi, Fujimaki, and Taninaka. This catalogue is a critical addition to the 20th century Japanese print enthusiast’s library.
