In January 2014, a major special exhibition of ukiyo-e prints was held in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the opening of the museum, which presented some outstanding pieces of significance in the history of ukiyo-e prints. This second exhibition will focus on five beloved ukiyo-e print artists: Kitagawa Utamaro, Toshusai Sharaku, Hokusai Katsushika, Hiroshige Utagawa, and Kuniyoshi Utagawa. In addition to works held in Japanese collections, several leading nishiki-e (colored woodblock prints) works by these artists from the collections of Western museums, galleries, and personal collections will also be on display.

This large-scale exhibition features masterpieces of five popular ukiyo-e artists—Kitagawa Utamaro, Toshusai Sharaku, Katsushika Hokusai, Utagawa Hiroshige, and Utagawa Kuniyoshi—collected from inside and outside Japan. The excellent works selected according to the favorite motifs of the five maestros—the “beauties” of Utamaro, “actors” of Sharaku, “landscapes” and “flowers and birds” of Hokusai and Hiroshige, and “warriors” and “caricatures” of Kuniyoshi—will invite you to fully enjoy the essence of the beauty of ukiyo-e, which have long fascinated the world.

London's Courtauld Gallery is a treasure house of world-renowned Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works—Manet's late masterpiece A Bar at the Folies-Bergère, Renoir's Theatre Box displayed at the First Impressionist Exhibition, Cézanne's The Card Players, Gauguin's Te Rerioa—these are just some of the masterpieces at the Courtauld. While these works are rarely lent for display outside London, renovations at the Courtauld have allowed us to bring these works to Japan.The Courtauld was founded by Samuel Courtauld (1876-1947), an English industrialist who was also an avid art collector with a superb eye. Determined to convey the fascination of modern French painting to his own country, he energetically collected such works, mainly in the 1920s. In 1932 he decided to found an art research and teaching institute at the University of London and donate his collection for its gallery. The research institute was named the Courtauld Institute of Art and the Courtauld Gallery was created as its exhibition space. The Courtauld's research aspect is also seen in this exhibition's interpretative materials that highlight the findings of art historical and scientific investigations of each work. We hope you will enjoy this chance to have an in-person dialogue with a splendid selection of approximately 60 paintings and sculptures from the Courtauld Gallery.
