ANNE went to see the Ukiyoe Exhibition♪ Vol.1 Mikaeri-bijinzu


Spring has come!?
It is getting warmer and warmer these day.

Yesterday, I went to the "Ukiyoe Exhibition", being held in Nagoya now.

Ukiyoe (浮世絵) was born in Edo(now in Tokyo) about 350 years ago.

Ukiyoe is a kind of Woodblock print.

Various scenes of ordinary lives of citizens, portraits of beautiful women, actors of Kabuki were drawn or printed in Ukiyoe.

The following picture is of the flyer of "Dai Ukiyoe Ten (The grand Ukiyoe Exhibition)".

Especially  the "Mikaeri-bijinzu 見返り美人図" drawed by Moronobu Hishikawa(菱川師宣), one of the most popular Ukiyoe artists is exhibited this time.

Mikaeri-bijinzu is ”Looking Back beauty” in English.
The design and coloring of Kimono,  the style, the hair style is beatiful.

And it is one of the most popular Ukiyoe pieces.

I think Ukiyoe is wonderful art and culture of Japan.
We should learn more about our own culture and we can proud of  Japanese culture more.

The pieces of Ukiyoe will be changed during the term of exhibition.
I'd like to go to see the exhibition again to see another great pieces.

The term of the exhibition is
 March 11 〜 May 6 
 at Nagoya City Museum
