Inspiration: Japanese Woodblock Prints

Japanese woodblock prints have served as the inspiration for numerous artists from the 19th century to today. The core of the exhibition is drawn from the Museum’s collection of more than 60 historical woodblock prints, primarily from the 19th century (Edo period), that focus on themes of landscape, nature, courtesans, and Kabuki actors. The exhibition also includes examples of contemporary woodblock printmaking and Manga (Japanese comics).
