Floating World of Ukiyo-e - Shadows, Dreams, and Substance

September 27, 2001–January 19, 2002

This exhibition showcases the Library's spectacular holdings of Japanese prints, books, and drawings from the 17th to the 19th centuries. These works are complemented by related works from the Library's collections created by Japanese and Westerns artists into the 20th century.

This exhibition, catalog, and programming were made possible by the generous support of Merrill Lynch.

Conservation of the works in this exhibition was made possible through a grant from The United States-Japan Foundation.
