Fleeting Beauty: Japanese Woodblock Prints

5 Apr

This exhibit, held at the Seattle Asian Art Museum, opened last Thursday (on April Fool’s day of all days) and will be around until July 4th. Featuring the work of great ukiyo-e artists such as Harunobu, Utamaro, Eishi, Hiroshige, and of course Hokusai, this show should really be a treat for anyone who enjoys the fine-lined and expressive works of these individuals. One of the most famed woodblock prints in the world, Hokusai’s Great Wave Off Kanagawa, will also be present in the exhibition.

The event is free for Seattle Art Museum members and $7 for nonmembers. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online here.
