Ukiyo-e to Shin Hanga: Japanese Woodcuts from the Syracuse University Art Collection

The Print Study Room

September 5, 2013 – May 11, 2014

Ukiyo-e to Shin Hanga draws from the University’s collection of over 300 examples from this important and hugely influential art movement. The prints on view date from the height of color Ukiyo-e printmaking (c1780-1868) through Japan’s Meiji period (1868-1912) to twentieth century impressions of the Shin Hanga movement (1915-1940s). Masters of this medium are represented, including the work of Utamaro, Kuniyoshi, Hokusai, Hiroshida, Tsuchiya Koitsu and Yoshida Hiroshi. The prints exemplify the soft, painterly style that is synonymous with the Japanese woodcut, and illustrates the wide range of subjects from courtesans to Kabuki theater and the Japanese landscape.
