Kunichika Japanese Prints

What’s On in Liverpool this June

Where: Lady Lever Art Gallery, Liverpool

Date: Throughout June 2022

This stunning new exhibition of prints by Toyohara Kunichika (1835-1900) is an exciting follow up to the Lady Lever Art Gallery’s previous exhibition, Edo-Pop.

Kunichika was one of the most important 19th century print makers in Japan. Born in Edo (present day Toyko), Kunichika was trained by Utagawa Kunisada (1786 -1865), a leading print maker of the time, and went on to be a highly original master in his own right. 

Sixty-eight of his hand-printed single, double and triptych prints will feature at the Lady Lever Art Gallery, Port Sunlight from 15 April 2022 – 4 September 2022.

These will include behind-the-scenes dressing room views, on-stage dramatic moments and close-up portraits of actors, as well as ten prints selected from his various series of ‘female beauties’. Kunichika embraced modern subjects and his prints reflected the great social and political change in Japan at time.

If visitors enjoy Kunichika: Japanese Prints, Liverpool Museums are asking them to pay what they think is appropriate, to support their museums and art galleries.
