A Century of Japanese Women 1804 – 1899

Kunisada, Woman with Nanten Berries

Toshidama Gallery opens a new exhibition today on women in nineteenth century Japanese woodblock prints. We’ve tried to move the focus away from the classic bijin picture of graceful women of leisure to show prints of women engaged in everyday pursuits like bracken and mushroom gathering, women heroines and villains, poets and musicians and later, kuchi-e from popular novels.

As usual we’ve tried to put in pieces to suit every pocket, and formats vary from oban to kakemono-e and from kuchi-e to oban triptychs. There are prints by Kunisada, Eisen, Kunichika, Chikanobu, Toyokuni, Hiroshige and Toshikata, covering the whole of the nineteenth century. Newsletter subscribers are enjoying a 10% discount on top of our usual reasonable prices so why not sign up to our six-weekly newsletter here. The exhibition runs for six weeks.
