The exhibition presents works by the two great 19th-century Masters of the “Floating World”, Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) and Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858), alongside modern prints by Kawase Hasui (1883-1957). Curated by Rossella Menegazzo, professor of East Asian Art History at the University of Milan, and Sarah E. Thompson, curator of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the exhibition is the result of a collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and MondoMostre.
Through a selection of more than 100 extraordinary woodblock color prints by these three masters, the exhibition is divided into 4 thematic sections, through the most evocative places in Japan, both real and imaginary, illustrating the artistic aspect of a country that underwent a huge transformation between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century due to the influence of the West.
