The brush, the instrument of the artist’s soul.

Say “ukiyo-e” and most people will think of woodblock prints, but in truth the genre has its roots in painting. Brought together here are some 125 paintings by sixty artists, from Iwasa Matabei (1578–1650), considered a forerunner of ukiyo-e, to genre originator Hishikawa Moronobu in the seventeenth century and masters Kitagawa Utamaro, Toshusai Sharaku, Katsushika Hokusai, and Utagawa Kuniyoshi in the eighteenth and nineteenth. Relive the three-hundred-year history of ukiyo-e and revel in each artist’s deftly alluring lines and magical colors—the soul of the brushwork lodged within the picture plane.
