Still More Japanese Art

I feel like I’m on a busman’s holiday. Carol and I went to the Boca Raton Museum of Art to see an exhibit of Ukiyoe prints by Utagawa Toyokuni I (1769-1825), Utagawa Kunisada, also known as Toyokuni III (1786-1865), and Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858). These were shown in connection with a large exhibit of Whistler from the Hunterian Art Gallery of Glasgow, Scotland. Both shows were excellent. It was really nice to get a chance to see more of these prints. Although I have long been familiar with the work of Hiroshige, the Utagawa Kunisada was new to me.
