We often share works by Utagawa Hiroshige, the last great master of the ukiyo-e tradition, but have you heard of Hishikawa Moronubu, the *first* great master?!⁠

Moronobu (b. 1618) was a Japanese artist and is known as the earliest master of the ukiyo-e medium. Ukiyo-e, or woodblock printing, translates to ‘pictures of the floating world’, and typically depicted entertainment districts or other scenes from urban life in Japan. ⁠

With a background in decorative arts and academic painting, Moronobu eventually turned to ukiyo-e and studied under another pioneer of the art form known as the Kanbun Master. Throughout his career, Moronobu produced over 100 illustrated books.⁠

Selanjutnya, ini salah satu tempat yang pengen banget dikunjungin. Untungnya kesampaian, ya Museum Ullen Sentalu. Mengingat peraturannya melarang foto area di bagian dalam, jadi ini foto di area luarnya aja. Walaupun waktu itu Jogja lagi musim hujan, syukurnya nyampe juga 😀

Blathers is always so excited and passionate about what I bring in. He’s even passionate about the bugs, though that passion is about his dislike for them. It’s nice hearing him chat so happily about how excited he is about the growing exhibits and his work studying them.

The velociraptor fossil finally was completed. It’s so small, like the size of a labrador. It’s fun picturing them hunting. Blathers was so cheerful as he spoke about the disservice that Jurassic Park had done with their size and the theories about their hunts. It was nice to see something he’d been working so hard on be completed.
