Plumbed from the ample depths of the Art Institute of Chicago's considerable collection of ukiyo-e woodblock prints, this exhibit (which closes Sunday, December 11) highlights the work of one of the masters of the form: Torii Kiyonaga. Acknowledged for their shimmering colors and realistic human forms, Kiyonaga's prints are a window into Edo-era Japan, all the better when seen up close.
