The Origins of Manga
10 May - 31 Oct 14
This series of works, in the new permanent gallery of Japan, traces the tradition of pictorial storytelling in Japan from hand scrolls to anime cels (a transparent sheet on which objects are drawn or painted on, for traditional, hand-drawn animation) via woodblock prints and manga.
This summer it will include work by Utagawa Kuniyoshi, Hiroshige and Hokusai.
