    Originating as souvenirs of popular theatre performances, inexpensive woodcut prints of the actors appearing in these dramas became a highly popular art form in Japan in the 19th century. Kunisada and Kuniyoshi were two of the leading exponents of the medium. This exhibition catalogue gives a comprehensive view of their work through over 450 colour illustrations together with essays introducing Japanese popular culture in the 19th century and explaining the legends and plays depicted.
