Study Room resource: Japanese prints

Prints and drawings, including fashion illustrations, architectural drawings, design drawings, watercolours, posters and much more, not on display in the galleries, can be seen in the Print & Drawings Study Room. To make it easier for teachers and lecturers to access the most popular material with groups, we have developed themed study room resources which contain original prints and drawings.

This study room resource explores the art of ukiyo-e Japanese prints including the works of Utamaro, Hokusai, Hiroshige and Kuniyoshi.

Torii Kiyonobu, 'Kabuki Scene of a Young Hero Battling with Two Warriors'
Utagawa Hiroshige, 'Kiga Hot Springs'
Utagawa Kunisada, 'The Kabuki Actors Ichikawa Kodanji IV and Bandô Kamezô'
Utagawa Kuniyoshi, 'The Rescue of Minamoto no Tametomo by Goblins'
