The Royal Academy of the Arts is featuring amazing prints by the master printmaker Utagawa Kuniyoshi until June 7th, 2009. Many of the works belonged to Arthur R. Miller's collection (not the brilliant playwright, unfortunately) which have recently been donated to the British Museum. I haven't seen a show this beautiful in a loooong time. There is nothing more mesmerizing and heartpounding than witnessing works of such high skill and callibre. I love Kuniyoshi's sensitivity to line and his crazy awesome imagination and interpretations of stories, poems, and theatre. I urge everyone in London to see this show!
