Kobayashi Kiyochika Woodblock Prints in DC
Opening March 29 at the Freer/Sackler in Washington DC, an exhibit of woodblock prints by Kobayashi Kiyochika titled Kiyochika: Master of the Night. Using age-old Japanese woodblock techniques, Kiyochika mimicked the look and feel of Western photographs and engravings to express the huge social and technological changes taking place in Tokyo at the end of the 19th century. Looks like a great show, and timed just right for cherry blossom season.
