Ukiyo-e to Shin Hanga: Japanese Woodcuts from the Syracuse University Art Collection
November 4 to December 30
Ukiyo-e to Shin Hanga: Japanese Woodcuts from the Syracuse University Art Collection is an exhibition of forty prints that provide insight into the impact of woodcuts throughout Japanese history. Beginning at the height of color Ukiyo-e printmaking in the late 1700s, the exhibition covers Japan’s Meiji period in the second half of the nineteenth century, and concludes with twentieth-century impressions of the Shin Hanga movement. Included are images of courtesans, landscapes, and Kabuki theater.
