Edo Pop: a new exhibition of Japanese prints at Lady Lever Art Gallery

The energy and spirit of 19th century Edo (now Tokyo) is brought to life in this exhibition of 50 woodblock prints at Lady Lever Art Gallery, on loan from local collector Frank Milner.

The vibrant and colourful prints were ‘mass produced’ by hand and eagerly sought after by fans of Edo’s popular culture. Visitors to the exhibition can explore an intriguing world of urban celebrities, actors, sports champions, fashion icons and villains.

The exhibition is free to visit and runs until 24 September. For more information visit the National Museums Liverpool website.
