Genji’s World in Japanese Woodblock Prints

The Tale of Genji, the world's first novel, was written over 1000 years ago by the Japanese court lady Murasaki Shikibu. Shikibu’s epic novel was a popular source of inspiration for woodblock print and illustrated book artists in the 19th century. This exhibition, organized by Scripps College (Claremont, CA), features more than 50 such woodblock prints and books depicting the scenes from Shikibu’s masterpiece.

 

Keeping in Touch: The Culture of Letter-Writing in Japan

In Japan, letter-writing is a highly refined art form that is deeply rooted in poetry, steeped in metaphorical allusions and symbolic meaning. This exhibition presents a variety of letter-writing forms from poems to postcards, and explores the myriad art forms that letter-writing brought about in Japan, such as lacquer writing boxes, ink stones, brushes, elegant papers, and other stationary implements.
