Ukiyo-e art, which flourished in the Edo Period, gradually declined with the influx of lithography and photography in the Meiji Era. In the midst of this, Tsukioka Kogyo (1869-1927) carried on the culture and techniques of ukiyo-e woodblock printing, pioneering the new genre of Noh art. Kogyo’s Noh art transferred the very experience of Noh theater to the woodblock print, finishing his works in opulence with a further impression of gold and silver and/or hand-painted colors. In this exhibit, we introduce you to Kogyo’s world of Noh, focusing on his representative work, ‘One Hundred Noh Plays.’
