This object has the following keywords:
  • Kuchi-e
  • Meiji - Period and style that coincides with the rule of emperor Mutsuhito, called Meiji, from 1868 to 1912. The period is characterized by a transformation from feudalism to a modern industrial state, taking western nations as a model. After the Vienna Exposition of 1873, artists were encouraged to produce traditional arts and crafts for export, such as carvings in wood and ivory and laquer. The art of the period also saw the influence of western art and architecture.

  • Self-defense
  • Showa - Refers to the period and style that coincided with the rule of emperor Hirohito, called Showa, from 1926 to 1989. The period is one of complex and contradictory changes from parliamentary democracy into militarism and global war and finally to economic recovery.
  • Taisho - Refers to the period and style that coincided with the reign of Emperor Taisho, from 1912 to 1926. The period saw a rise in prosperity and industry during World War I and the beginings of democratic reform in the 1920s.
