Curator-Led Member Tour: Hiroshige’s 100 Famous Views of Edo (feat. Takashi Murakami)

Wednesday, May 22, 2024

6–7:30 pm

Morris A. and Meyer Schapiro Wing and Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Gallery, 5th Floor

Members: For the first time in 24 years, experience one of the Brooklyn Museum’s greatest treasures in Hiroshige’s 100 Famous Views of Edo (feat. Takashi Murakami). The Museum’s complete set of Utagawa Hiroshige’s celebrated prints is among the world’s finest, full of vibrant colors preserved by decades in the dark. 

Artist Takashi Murakami takes Hiroshige’s views into a more fantastical realm with a set of his own paintings. Created in direct response to 100 Famous Views of Edo, these works invite us to reconsider Hiroshige’s world and his contributions to global art history. See them all on this tour led by Lisa and Bernard Selz Curator of Asian Art Joan Cummins. 

This tour is reserved for Groundbreaker and Director’s Circle Members in thanks for their generous support of the Brooklyn Museum. To RSVP or for questions, email membership@brooklynmuseum.org. Not a Member? Join today to participate in this program and other great Member events year-round.
