“Super Ukiyo-e: The Edo Code” is ukiyo-e like you’ve never seen before. Enjoy some 20,000 ukiyo-e prints by master artists in high-res digital form. These images are the best of the best: coming from the Spaulding Collection in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and other top-class galleries. Special video technology blows up and animates some of the most famous works for a 3D effect.
