The Energy of Edo: Genre Painting and Ukiyo-e

Art, Museums & Exhibitions, Traditional Events & Japanese Culture

During the Edo period, people in Japan began to realize the importance of enjoying life, more than constantly enduring hardships and war. The subject of paintings changed to that of daily life, depicting people who looked positively into the future. The exhibition displays ukiyo-e and genre paintings in the early modern era, including some that have never been featured in public exhibitions before.

See Seikado Bunko Art Museum’s official Japanese webpage for more information.
