Paired with Yoshitoshi
Late last month, Cullom Gallery moved to a new building in Seattle’s Nihonmachi (Japantown). The inaugural exhibit, called "Japanese Prints: Tradition & Influence," shows traditional Japanese prints from the 19th and 20th centuries alongside prints by contemporary artists who have been influenced by the styles and techniques of traditional Japanese printmaking. In the exhibit, gallery director Beth Cullom has paired my woodblock print about the suicide of Dorothy May Bradford alongside an 1885 print by Yoshitoshi, Moon of Pure Snow at Asano River, which depicts the suicide of a woman named Chikako.
