Japanese woodblock Prints
The crown jewel of the Academy’s Japanese art holdings is its
collection of more than 10,000 Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints,
approximately half of which were donated by James A. and Mari Michener.
In the collection are many masterworks by Kitagawa Utamaro, Katsushika
Hokusai, and the world’s largest collection of prints designed by
Utagawa Hiroshige. Due to their fragility and sensitivity to light,
woodblock print displays are changed every two months in the Robert F.
Lange Foundation Gallery of Japanese Woodblock Prints (Gallery 21).
