About the exhibition

The Neue Galerie Graz owns some 300 coloured woodcuts, mainly by Japanese artists, as well as several works of Chinese painters of the period from the end of the 18th to the 19th century. The variety of themes in Japanese art of this period is also reflected in several areas of the collection of the Neue Galerie Graz:

Kabuki scenes show famous actors in characteristic roles, for instance. Ukiyo-e illustrations reflect the life and culture of Japan’s bourgeois society.

A selection of commercial art likewise offers insight into a culture that appears exotic to us, and yet in some areas, modern.
