Country Views and City Life: Exploring the Japanese Woodblock Print Tradition

April 4 – 25, 2013

Japanese woodblock prints from the 18th and 19th centuries, also known as ukiyo-e or "pictures of the floating world," have long been popular in Japan and in the West. Drawing from works in the UWM Art Collection and Collection of Ron Dunnett, this exhibition explores the tradition through subjects such as Kabuki actors, beautiful women, and travel scenes.
