"Kunisada and the Japanese Actor Print"
2001-10-06 until 2002-03-03
Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery
Birmingham, , UK

This exhibition marks the first public showing of a group of colour woodblock actor prints produced in Edo (present - day Tokyo) between 1824 and 1842. Containing 81 single-sheets, this album entered the collection of Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery in 1970, but attracted little attention over the next 30 years until Dr Ellis Tinios, Senior Lecturer at the University of Leeds, recognised the quality of the material.

After consultation with the British Museum and specialist conservators, the decision was made to carefully remove the prints from the album, conserve them, and mount them as an outstanding group of actor prints. These prints have been specially restored for these exhibition with the support of the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation.
