From Flowers to Warriors: Japanese Woodblock Prints from the St. Catherine University Archives & Special Collections, curated by Christina M. Spiker with MaryJane Eischen and Nicole Wallin, St. Catherine University Library, St. Catherine University, St. Paul, MN (April 13 – May 26, 2019)

ABSTRACT

Drawing from items in the University’s Archives & Special Collections, this exhibition builds on the concurrent show Nostalgic Femininity in the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery to explore a broader range of topics in nineteenth-century printmaking, from delicate studies of flowers to intense scenes of battle. The show features various prints by Meiji-period artists Utagawa Yoshitora and Tsukioka Yoshitoshi alongside select examples from other artists including Showa-period shin-hanga artists Aoyama Masaharu, Asada Benji, and Ohno Bakufu. It will open alongside a digital supplement.
