The Poetry of Nature in Japanese Woodblock Prints
Utagawa (Ando) Hiroshige
The Poet Saigyo’s Hut at Shigitatsu March in Oiso from Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido series
Woodblock print on paper
Gift of Barbara Stratton Bolling and Deborah S. Booker in memory of Arthur Mills Stratton
The poetic visions of the land and its moods expressed by Japanese woodblock artists present a personal response and celebration of the ever-changing effects of nature. They concentrate on features of the land and urban environment, which then become transformed through the different seasons, times of day, and shifting weather patterns. By exploring the eloquent compositional arrangements in relation to subject matter and Japanese poetry, this exhibition hopes to open new avenues in the appreciation of this quintessentially Japanese form of artistic expression.
