ARTH511 - UKIYO-E

Study Japanese woodblock prints from the seventeenth through the twentieth century. For most of the course, we will be concerned with prints from the Edo, or Tokugawa, period (1615-1868) in the style known as "ukiyo-e" ("images of the floating world") and the culture that produced them, but in the final weeks we will also consider the continuation and adaptation of woodblock printing in modern print movements. Study of prints at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and other local collections.
