Japanese Ghosts and Demons: Ukiyo-e prints - exhibition now online

11 October 2010

Giant spiders, dancing skeletons, winged goblins and hordes of ghostly warriors are among the spooky subjects depicted in this display of 19th century woodblock prints from the Ashmolean’s own collection.

The exhibition is on display in the Museum until 27th February 2011. Focusing on works by the renowned artists Kuniyoshi and Yoshitoshi, the display is timed to coincide with Halloween.

Now, more details about the exhibition and in-depth information on all the works featured, including zoom-able high-resolution images for every print, can be found here on Eastern Art Online.

After the physical display in the Museum comes down in 2011, the online exhibition will remain available online indefinitely, as an archived resource that can continue to be explored.
