The Cernuschi Museum, after 9 months of renovation, is finally open and offers a two-part exhibition based on travels through Kisokaidō. This legendary path, one of the five lanes of the road network created in Japan during the Tokugawa period (1603-1868), connected Edo, the residence of the shogun, to Kyōto, the seat of the emperor. The long road, punctuated with 69 stages through mountainous terrain, was picturesque and arduous due to its nine steep passes. Between 1835 and 1838, Kisokaidō was the subject of a series of engravings by Keisai Eisen (1790-1848) and Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858). Later, two other series were made by the brush of Kunisada (1786-1865) and Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861). The exhibition explores these two series in their entirety.
The first of Eisen and Hiroshige, from the Georges Leskowicz collection, is considered one of the most beautiful in the world, appreciated for the quality of the printing and the freshness of the colors. The second by Kuniyoshi, from the former collection of Henri Cernuschi (1821-1896), will be revealed to the public for the first time.
