    Kyosai went through an unconventional combination of art training, first with the Ukiyo-e master Kuniyoshi Utagawa when he was very young, then later in the Kano school of Japanese-style painting. The artist used profuse variety of techniques to produce his paintings and drawings, sometimes as a legitimate Kano-school painter, and at other times, as an Ukiyo-e artist with bold ideas. His works, many with distinctive wit and humour, covered a wide range of subjects, from Buddhist themes to social caricature.

    The exhibition showcases Kyosai’s works selected from Israel Goldman’s collection, which is known as one of the world’s best collections of the artist. They include such paintings brilliantly depicting the crows that gave him world recognition, as well as personified animals, the Westerners in Japan in the end of Edo and the beginning of Meiji Era, ghosts and evil spirits, Seven Lucky Gods and Bodhidharma. The exhibition offers an excellent overview of the multifaceted universe of the great artist.
