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).

Funding has been provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Exhibition Date: March 26, 2019 - July 26, 2019
