The Japanese Cultural Insititute exhibits some traditional Japanese wood-block prints, known as ukiyo-e, from the collection of the Fondazione del Monte of Bologna and Ravenna. The woodcut was introduced to Japan from China in the eighth century but didn't develop as an art form until the 17th century. The exhibition is divided into five sections: the first offers a selection of prints from the Kamigata region; the second and third are dedicated respectively to Utagawa Kunisada and Kuniyoshi Utagawa, two of the greatest ukiyo-e artists of 19th-century; the fourth section presents works by other important ukiyo-e artists; and the fifth is devoted to rare prints for children.
