Japanese Woodcuts

The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge has opened an exhibition from its own collection of Japanese woodblock prints: Snow Country: Woodcuts of the Japanese Winter. "This selection of prints by artists such as Hokusai and Hiroshige includes stories from poetry and myth, with journeys, ambushes and skirmishes in the snow; children throwing snowballs and building snow-rabbits; the everyday struggle of travellers making their way through snowdrifts..." (CLICK). Shown is Utagawa Hiroshigi's Eagle. The exhibition continues until Sunday 13 January 2013. It's in the Shiba Gallery (14).
