The exhibition ‘The Beauty of the Moment’ is composed of three units of artistic work, each from a different century and created in a different medium: woodblock prints of the 18th/19th centuries, photography of the 19th/20th centuries, and film of the 21st century. The common theme of all of them is to capture a fleeting moment in Japanese society of their time. The main focus is on bijinga prints, ‘pictures of beautiful women’ whose beauty is honoured in snapshots of irretrievable magic.
