Video Release—Ukiyo-e Prints in Context

Thursday, October 1, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints are among the world's most popular and recognized art forms, and have delighted viewers both inside and outside Japan for centuries. But who were they made for? Why were they made? And why were certain subjects so popular? The AMAM will release a short video lecture, created by Kevin R.E. Greenwood, Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, which will answer those questions and more, using examples from the Allen's renowned collection of ukiyo-e prints.

Future events in our Allen Online series will continue throughout the year on the first and third Thursdays of each month.

Join the Facebook event, where the video will be posted.

Presented with support from a Freeman Asian Arts & Culture Initiative grant from the Freeman Foundation.
