Hiroshige Utagawa & Akira Yamaguchi

Painter Akira Yamaguchi has paid homage to classical Japanese art traditions in his work on numerous occasions, but this marks his first foray into the world of woodblock prints. Created to commemorate the opening of the Tokyo Skytree (and, more obscurely, the 101st anniversary of the current Nihombashi bridge), Yamaguchi's depictions of contemporary Tokyo will be displayed alongside prints by one of the undisputed masters of ukiyo-e, Hiroshige Utagawa.
