The Setsugekka (Snow, Moon, and Flowers) triptych is a famous masterpiece of Kitagawa Utamaro (?–1806). It is comprised of three paintings: Fukugawa in the Snow, Moon at Shinagawa, and Cherry Blossoms at Yoshiwara. Fukugawa in the Snow is held by the Okada Museum of Art, and the other two paintings by museums in the United States. For this exhibit, Cherry Blossoms at Yoshiwara is being brought all the way from the United States to be displayed along with Fukugawa in the Snow. It has been 138 years since these two artworks were shown together in Japan. They will be presented alongside the full-scale, intricately produced replica work of Moon at Shinagawa, completing the trilogy.
