Japan and Its Prints in the Floating World
2:00 PM
Japan and Its Prints in the Floating World
The Morristown & Morris Township Library is pleased to present this illustrated discussion of Japanese prints during the Edo period (1600-1867). The first rudimentary prints during this period focused on portraits of courtesans and kabuki actors, with the genre ultimately developing into the sophisticated art form admired by the likes of Western artists such as Monet and van Gogh. The period encompasses many of the most familiar names in Japanese prints, including Utamaro, Hokusai, and Hiroshige. The presentation will focus on early period prints and then examine masterpieces by each of these artists. At the conclusion of the lecture, there will be a display of Japanese crafts from the last two centuries as well as prints from Tom Silver’s own collection.  Read more...
