    The Printer’s Eye: Ukiyo-e from the Grabhorn Collection
    February 20–May 10, 2015

    The Printer’s Eye: Ukiyo-e from the Grabhorn Collection featured ukiyo-e, woodblock prints that celebrated and depicted the Floating World. Eighty-eight rare works never before shown in the U.S. revealed Japanese printmaking’s technical refinement, beauty, and innovation. The show examined the social, political, and historical context for these works, especially the story of communication and how popular culture circulated through the medium of prints in Edo-period Japan.
