Ota Memorial Museum of Art

Ōta Memorial Museum of Art was founded based on the ukiyo-e collection of late Seizō OtaⅤ, former president of Tōhō Insurance Company. It is one of the few museums in Japan totally dedicated to ukiyo-e (meaning "pictures of the floating world") Opened in Harajuku, Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan, in January 1980, the museum presents rotating exhibitions of Ukiyo-e from its own collection of over 14,000 pieces, dating from 1680 to 1880. The mis-en-scene of the museum resembles that of a private Japanese house, so taken the shoes part of its displays is necessary, bringing another relationship to the exhibited art works. It is a two storey building linked through an internal stair. The first floor is designed as a mezzanine. The exhibition on show was from works by Utagawa Kuniyoshi | Photos by Martin Grossmann, October 2019 | URL: http://www.ukiyoe-ota-muse.jp/eng
