ICN Ukiyo-e Part 1

The latest exhibition at the ICN Gallery is particularly fascinating. The Adachi Institute of Woodcut Prints have been carefully researching and reproducing many of the greatest works from Japanese art history, using craft-skills of the very highest standard. All these new prints on display at the ICN are for sale, and for very reasonable prices considering the quality and that they are actual wood-block prints.

The detail is incredible and the colours really beautiful; quite an inspiration for us creatives, despite many of these designs being over 300 years old yet they still look so perfectly contemporary. This show is open until April 28, be sure to go and pick your favourite before someone else buys it and take home your very own ‘picture from a floating world’…!

Check the ICN Facebook page for the full set of photographs.

      • Unfortunately haven’t been to London for several years. Much too long since the last time. Things to love about London: Kew Garden, Chelsea Physic Garden and also your blog. We’re in Northern California, in Sonoma County, 45 minutes north of San Francisco.

      • Ooh, I do know Sonoma County – actually part of my family lives there!! We visited one time years ago and it is such a beautiful part of the US! We are actually quite eager to return to see them sometime soon. Thanks for the sweet comment as always.

      • Amazing! You are very welcome. It is such a very, very small world! Right now the apple blossoms are coming out, the hillsides are very green, the grape vines still appear bare (but are getting ready to burst forward with green) and everyone, it seems is planting their summer vegetable gardens right now.
