Ukiyoe: Floating World from the Saito Collection

Though it's restricted itself mostly to 19th century European art thus far, the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum will be plunging headfirst into the world of ukiyoe woodblock prints this summer, with a show so sprawling that it's had to be divided into three parts. There'll be a total of 600 pieces on display during the exhibition, starting with the late-18th century 'golden age' (June 22-July 15), moving through the print series of Hokusai, Hiroshige, et al. (July 17-August 11), then finishing with the rush to modernism of the late Edo and early Meiji eras (August 13-September 8).
