The British Museum team busy installing a show-stopping 17-metre-long theatre curtain ahead of the opening of the MANGA Exhibition earlier this month. It was made by Japanese artist Kawanabe Kyōsai for the Shintomi Theatre on 30th June 1880. That day, after drinking a few bottles of rice wine, Kyōsai retreated to a studio and started painting.

The curtain is on loan from the Tsubouchi Memorial Theatre Museum, Waseda University. Photo: British Museum
