Introduction of the Exhibition
Commemorating the one-year anniversary of Fujisawa Ukiyo-e Museum, our museum holds the special exhibition “Enoshima Island and the Masterpieces of Ukiyo-e”.
Located at the southern part of Fujisawa City, Enoshima Island was popular as the place for pilgrimage. This island was also known as the tourism spot and many people visited here during the Edo period. Since many ukiyo-e artists illustrated the beautiful landscape of Enoshima Island, variety of works of Enoshima Island remained till today.
In this exhibition, with the works borrowed from Isago no Sato Museum, the selected masterpieces of ukiyo-e of the Enoshima Island are exhibited. Additionally, through the works of the important ukiyo-e artists such as Hishikawa Moronobu, Suzuki Harunobu, Katsushika Hokusai, Utagawa Kuniyoshi and Utagawa Hiroshige, visitors can overlook the history of ukiyo-e.
