Auspicious Images: Japanese Prints from the Permanent Collection

When: Saturdays, Sundays, 12-4 p.m. and Tuesdays-Fridays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through March 15 2015

Literally meaning “pictures of the floating world”, Ukiyo-e refers to the Japanese woodblock prints genre that originated in the seventeenth century. Informed by depictions of city life, entertainment, leisure, women, kabuki actors, and landscapes, Ukiyo-e magnified the sophistication of the newly minted bourgeoisie who had found a playground in Edo.
