Courtiers, Courtesans, and Crones: Women in Japanese Prints

Exhibition Dates: 
Friday, Jun 23, 2017 to Sunday, Oct 29, 2017

Courtiers, Courtesans, and Crones: Women in Japanese PrintsThis focus exhibition investigates depictions of women in Japanese woodblock prints and considers the limited identities and confining roles associated with women during the Tokugawa period (1603–1868). While women may have had diverse roles in Japanese society, only a few conventionalized identities were chosen for representation by the all-male artists, carvers, printers, and agents producing and distributing woodblock prints. Several prints in the exhibition have never been displayed before.
