Hashiguchi Goyo's Beautiful Women

 

Fourth Floor Drawing Gallery
Admission is Free

 

 

 

Through just a handful of images, Hashiguchi Goyo, the last of Japan’s great ukiyo-e printmakers, captured the spirit and the dynamic visual character of the pre-war era. Between 1918 and his death in 1920, Goyo oversaw the production of just 13 prints. Of these, eight were images of beautiful women. To this small group of images, his brother and nephew added a handful of posthumous works based on completed designs. The 12 prints and two drawings in this exhibition comprise first editions of all of Goyo’s prints of beautiful women and reveal the elegant design sense of this important modern Japanese artist.
