Japanese Impressions from the Vault: The Rare, the Beautiful, and the Bizarre

July 26, 2014 to September 06, 2015

This selection of Japanese woodblock prints was catalogued during a recent print re-housing project undertaken by Faith Kreskey (MA, art history, 2012). The works include a variety of 19th century ukiyo-e (images of the floating world) by artists of the Utagawa School, 20th century shinhanga (so-called new prints) and sōsaku hanga (creative prints), and a few recently acquired contemporary Japanese works.
