“Inventing Utamaro”

Free

After being lost for nearly 70 years, “Snow at Fukagawa,” a large-scale painting by the mysterious Japanese artist Kitagawa Utamaro, resurfaced in 2014. This exhibit marks the first time in almost 150 years that the work is reunited with two companion pieces by Utamaro (one is at right), each depicting an escape from reality in 18th-century Tokyo’s pleasure quarter.
