Sunday Tour: Watanabe: Japanese Print Envoy

Dates: Sun Dec 23, 18

Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Japanese publisher Shozaburo Watanabe started his business in the early 20th century, hiring a new generation of artists and craftsmen to create Japanese prints in the time-honored woodcut tradition of Hokusai and Hiroshige. Many of Watanabe's most innovative prints, made at the beginning of his publishing career, are rare. Join us for a docent-led tour of the exhibition Watanabe: Print Envoy. These prints tell the story of the workshop that set the standard for the new generation of print publishers.
