Culture and Industry:Japanese Woodblock Prints of the Meiji Period
June 5 – Oct. 11
Drawn from the AMoA’s permanent collection and the collection of Dr. and Mrs. William T. Price, this exhibition will include Japanese woodblock prints from the Meiji Period (1868-1912). This was a period of quick economic and social development. The Westernization of culture and industry is reflected in the woodblock prints of this period which depict a Japan in transition.
