Exhibition: Courtiers, Courtesans, and Crones: Women in Japanese Prints

Wednesday, September 20 at 9:00am to 4:00pm more dates through October 29, 2017

Mizzou North , Museum of Art and Archaeology Galleries 115 Business Loop 70 W, Columbia, MO 65203

This focus exhibition investigates depictions of women in Japanese woodblock prints and considers the limited identities and confining roles associated with women during the Tokugawa period (1603–1868). While women may have had diverse roles in Japanese society, only a few conventionalized identities were chosen for representation by the all-male artists, carvers, printers, and agents producing and distributing woodblock prints. Several prints in the exhibition have never been displayed before.
