Styled with Poise: Figures in Japanese Paintings and Prints

Exhibition Website

Jul 8 2017 - Jan 7 2018

Regal courtiers, lively townspeople, tragic heroines, and virtuous deities are presented in exquisite form in this exhibition featuring figures in Japanese art. The show focuses primarily on art from the Edo period (1603–1868), when a wide range of painting styles and significant developments in woodblock printmaking made visual art accessible to many in Japan.

This exhibition draws together a variety of paintings and printed works from private collections and public institutions to explore these many types of figures and figural representation in Edo period Japanese art.
