2015 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Nishiki-e (colour-printed ukiyo-e) since its establishment in 1765 by Suzuki Harunobu. One of the reasons that Nishiki-e achieved worldwide popularity was the techniques involved in printing them.

In this exhibition, commemorating this 250th anniversary, the exhibition will focus on introducing the refined skills of ukiyo-e wood-block printing. By bringing one’s attention to the less known techniques of wood-block carving and printing, the show hopes to allow visitors to discover a new charm in ukiyo-e.
