This exhibit opens February 11, 2017 at the Cincinnati Art Museum:
The Cincinnati Art Museum’s Howard and Caroline Porter Collection is the largest repository of the woodcuts of Kosaka Gajin outside the family in Tokyo, Japan. This exhibition celebrates his prints capturing the beauty of Japan’s landscape and architectural monuments in a way that is totally modern in its individualized expression, not unlike the era’s action painting in the West. This exhibition of his later woodcuts will be the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work in the United States.
Ticketed – free for members.
