Video Release—How Were Ukiyo-e Prints Made?

Friday, October 2, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints of the 17th to the 19th centuries are usually associated with one person, print designers like Hokusai or Hiroshige. However, these artists were just one part of a sophisticated industry that mass-produced prints for Japanese urban consumers. The AMAM presents this short video, created by Kevin R.E. Greenwood, Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art. Using examples from the Allen's renowned collection of ukiyo-e prints, Greenwood introduces the different types of workers in this industry, who collaborated to create an artform now recognized throughout the world.

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