Ukiyo-e illustrations of the Sagami Province and Kyouka printing
Introduction of the Exhibition
In the Edo period, with the prosperity of commoners’ culture, the development of peripheral areas was rapid, and in many ways the characteristics of a real culture started to take shape. Sagami province was near to the Edo city. A variety of Ukiyo-e were painted, and those surviving show the creation of a real culture. In this exhibit, the cultural relationship of the Ukiyo-e and Sagami areas will be introduced. Also, a private Ukiyo-e ‘Surimono’, which has never appeared in public, will be exhibited.
