    Exhibition / Festival

Ukiyo-e is a genre of Japanese art which flourished during the 17th to 19th centuries. Its artists produced woodblock prints and paintings of beautiful women, kabuki actors and sumo wrestlers, scenes from history and folktales, travel scenes and landscapes, flora and fauna, and erotica. The term ukiyo-e translates as ‘pictures of the floating world’ and Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858) is widely considered to be the last great master of these legendary and fascinating Japanese works of art.
In this exhibition, we have chosen to feature 16 of his ‘flora and fauna’ or ‘Flowers and Birds pictures which perfectly complement the wonder of RHS Garden Harlow Carr. These very special Japanese woodblock prints are not originals but have been made by hand using the same printing processes as the originals. The colours are simply stunning. They will be available to view and buy during the exhibition, which will also feature a pop-up shop by The Japanese Shop, which will be selling a variety of authentic Japanese gifts.
