From november 1st to March 24th 2019 (from 10 am to 6pm, last entrance 30mn before closing)

As of 8 November 2019, the Hôtel de Caumont Art Centre will be holding an exhibition of Japanese costumes and culture dating from the Edo era (1600-1867); the exhibition will include 150 ukiyo-e prints and other remarkable objects that will be presented to the French public for the very first time. Most of the works are from the Georges Leskowicz Collection, which is one of the largest of its kind in the world.

In addition to ancient manuscripts and objects, the Georges Leskowicz Collection currently comprises 1,800 ukiyo-e prints, executed by the great masters Harunobu, Utamaro, Sharaku, Hokusai, and Hiroshige, including masterpieces such as Hokusai’s ‘Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji’ (1832–1833), ‘The Sixty-Nine Stations of the Kiso Kaidō’ by Hiroshige and Eisen, as well as an ensemble—which is unique in France—of Surimono woodblock prints, which will constitute the core of the exhibition.
