Ukiyo-e. Utamaro, Hokusai, Hiroshige

La nascita, l'evoluzione e i capolavori di un genere grafico che ha segnato la storia artistica del Giappone tra il XVII e il XIX secolo.

Utamaro, Hokusai e Hiroshige furono tra i maggiori protagonisti dell'Ukiyo-e: fin dal tardo Ottocento le loro opere furono notevolmente apprezzate anche in Occidente influenzando in modo esplicito molti tra gli artisti delle avanguardie europee.
