Marking Time: Seasonal Imagery in Japanese Prints

Exhibition Website

Jul 26 2016 - Jun 16 2017

An installation of Japanese prints featuring scenes from winter and spring celebrates the AMAM’s theme of “time” for this academic year. In Japanese culture, deeply rooted appreciation for the 
natural world combines with the four distinct seasons to create a rich tradition of art and literature that evokes and represents seasonal change. Included are woodblock prints by legendary masters of the Edo period (1603–1868), such as Utagawa Hiroshige I, Hiroshi Yoshida, and Katsukawa Shuncho.
