Fresh Impressions: Early Modern Japanese Prints
Oct. 4, 2013-Jan. 1, 2014
During the 1930s the Toledo Museum of Art introduced modern Japanese prints to American audiences with two landmark exhibitions. These seminal shows featured the works of 15 contemporary Japanese artists who had revived the traditional art of the woodblock print for a new era. Fresh Impressions: Early Modern Japanese Prints reassembles and reinterprets the 1930 show and adds companion objects depicted in the prints such as kimonos, netsuke, and samurai swords.
