Secretly collected in Europe by famous artists such as Gustav Klimt and Émile Zola at the opening of Japan to the West in 1868, ukiyo-e prints contribute to the birth and development of the Japonisme in the late nineteenth century.

The exhibition The Art of Love in the Time of geishas: prohibited masterpieces of Japanese art offers over 200 prints, photographs to albumin and objects of daily life from the Museo delle Culture Lugano and other major public museums and private collections in Switzerland and Italy. A collection of modern and contemporary works, manga prints and paintings, shows the continuity of this tradition into erotic contemporary Japan.
