Engravings exhibition by Utagawa Kuniyoshi @ MNAR

MNAR presents in an exhibition a selection of 59 engravings made by Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861), one of the last well-known representatives of the powerful Utagawa School that dominated the most productive period of the Japanese polychrome engraving. The exhibition is part of a greater project, by which the Oriental Art Department aims at using the Japanese engravings heritage of the museum that is very little known by the public. Curator of the exhibition is Mrs. Carmen Brad, a specialist in Oriental art. According to a press release of MNAR, the engravings, in their greatest majority exhibited for the first time, illustrate some of the major themes of Kuniyoshi. They offer an overview, comprehensive, but not exhaustive, of the work of this extremely talented and imaginative artist, an absolute master of the heroes and warriors engravings.
