Group Exhibition: 250 Years of Japanese illustrated books and woodcut prints

April 30 - May 19

Ohara Koson, A pair of quail among grasses and ivy in full moonlight, 1926. Woodblock print, 37 x 19cm. Courtesy: the artist and Australian Galleries, Collingwood.

 

Japanese woodblock prints of the 18th and 19th Centuries record an exotic, vibrant, colourful and highly sophisticated society in a form which constitutes a significant element in the history of world graphic art. The imagery takes the viewer into a world of Kabuki plays and actors, courtesans and beautiful women, heroes of legend, historical battles, and the Japanese landscape. This show is presented in association with Gallery East.

 

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Tuesday 30 April 2019
