Shunsho: 100 Poems by 100 Poets

Shunsho: 100 Poems by 100 Poets View Works

In celebration of National Poetry Month, Ronin Gallery is pleased to present a collection of prints from Shunsho’s The 100 Poems by the 100 Poets Brocaded in the Eastern Weave (1775). Combining the art of poetry with the art of the woodblock print, this series captures the evocative poems of one hundred famous Japanese poets. Originally bound as a complete anthology, these designs invited 18th century readers to lose themselves in page after page of poetry. Each composition unites elegant script with sensitive portraiture to capture the spirit of each poet. All works in the exhibition include a translation of the poem, inviting you to experience the artistry of word and image in each print. 


During this uncertain time, all shipping will be delayed until the gallery may safely reopen. To offset this inconvenience, we are offering free shipping on domestic orders over $500 and international orders over $1000.
