This fall the English and Art classes made our annual pilgrimage to the Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore for our cross curricular Visual Narrative Project. This year however, I was excited to discover that the gallery had a featured exhibit of Japanese Woodblock prints. Not only was it exciting to learn the history of this artistic golden age, but the exhibit clearly dissected the process of making as well as how that process developed over time and the factors that influence it. Below are some of my favorite works from the exhibit as well as a gallery of tools and techniques.
Please check out the link below to the museum website and more detailed information about the exhibit.
