Handsome Boys and Good-Looking Men of Edo

Beautiful women are a common subject for ukiyo-e woodblock prints, but what about beautiful men? In fact, there's a rich tradition of depicting dishy fellows in traditional Japanese art – and you can see plenty of examples during the Ota Memorial Museum of Art's summer exhibition, from Edo-era dandies and kabuki actors to literary characters such as Hikaru Genji.
