Japanese Woodblock Prints: The Art of Collaboration

September 30, 2018–January 06, 2019

Japanese Woodblock Prints showcases more than 40 lively prints dating from the 18th through 19th centuries from the Walters’ collection.

Japanese woodblock prints are often credited to individual artists like Hokusai and Hiroshige. However, these celebrated and beautiful works of art are the products of masterfully orchestrated collaborations among publishers, artists, carvers, and printers; their distinct roles are explored in this exhibition.
