After the Floating World: The Enduring Art of Japanese Woodblock Prints

at Oklahoma City Museum of Art
 
 

The Oklahoma City Museum of Art presents a new exhibit of Ukiyo-e, images carved onto wooden blocks used to create colorful prints on paper. Among the most famous Japanese art forms, Ukiyo-e prints vary in subject matter, including Kabuki actors, female portraiture, folktales, mythology and landscapes.

Organized from the museum’s collections, this exhibit focuses on Torii Kiyotada VII and Hiroshi Yoshida, two printmakers at the forefront of the 20th century evolution of the Ukiyo-e tradition.
