November 5, 2017 @ 8:00 am - January 28, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
This exhibition, the first solo show given to this artist in Italy, presents the full spectrum of Kuniyoshi’s production, highlighting his dazzling technical ability and inventiveness in a selection of 165 woodcuts all from Japan. The presentation is theme-based: Mushae (images of heroes and warriors), Ghosts and Imaginary Creatures, Beautiful Women, Landscapes, Games and Shadows. Two further sections are dedicated to Kuniyoshi’s great passions: the heroes of the novel Suikoden and cats, both constant presences in the art of this genius of ukiyo-e.
