We are pleased to present Japanese prints of cat monsters, shapeshifting beauties, and other fantastic scenes of the supernatural during Asia Week New York. Spectral scenes were essential ingredients of kabuki plays, and ukiyo-e of the time reflect the excitement and drama of this mainstay of 19th c. popular culture. Kuniyoshi’s designs of demonic cat ghosts are especially remarkable, as he was a master of feline imagery. Yoshitoshi’s supernatural images are also renowned, especially for the power of their storytelling. Artists drew from the long tradition of supernatural stories in Japan, which dates back hundreds of years, even into the folklore of prehistory. We look forward to welcoming you to our upcoming exhibit at the Conrad New York Midtown from March 16th through the 17th.
