At a time when the French Academy had become too rigid for many artists, Van Gogh and Monet found in Japanese woodblock prints radically new artistic possibilities. Both collected hundreds of ukiyo-e, now preserved in Monet’s home in Giverny and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. The Ronin Gallery is pleased to present a selection of antique Japanese prints that were the same as the one's in the collections of these most important Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists. Featuring works by famous woodblock print artists such as Kunisada (1786–1864), Eisen (1790–1848), and Hiroshige (1797–1858), the exhibition highlights prints that changed the course of Western art history.
