The Chazen’s world-famous collection of Japanese woodblock prints will be on view May 6–August 14, 2016. This survey of Japanese printmaking will include more than a hundred of the most famous works in the museum’s collection, including early prints that are so light-sensitive that they are not placed on view more than once in a decade. Prints from the last half of the eighteenth century, the nineteenth and twentieth centuries will show the mastery of the printmakers and their transformation of the medium in response to changing times.
