Samurai, Ghosts and Lovers: Yoshitoshi’s Complete 100 Aspects of the Moon - Exhibit at the Dayton Art Institute February 22–May 3.
February 22–May 3
The Dayton Art Institute will be the exclusive venue for this exhibition, organized by the DAI from a recent acquisition of a complete set of Tsukioka Yoshitoshi’s 100 Aspects of the Moon. The series is one of the outstanding achievements in the history of Japanese woodblock prints and is a tour-de-force, combining striking designs with dramatic stories from Japan’s past. The prints depict heroism and humor, love and loss, mystery and magic, with the linking motif of the presence of the moon. This exhibition will provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see all 100 prints on view together, and it is a fitting conclusion to the museum’s centennial celebrations.
