Japan and Its Prints in the Floating World: Part 2
Sep
15
2:00 PM14:00

Japan and Its Prints in the Floating World: Part 2

Japanese print enthusiast Tom Silver explores the origin and development of Japanese prints during the Edo era (1600-1867). The first prints focused on courtesans and kabuki actors, with the genre ultimately developing into the sophisticated art form admired by the likes of Monet and van Gogh. The period encompasses many of the most familiar names in Japanese prints - including Utamaro, Hokusai, Hiroshige, and Kuniyoshi. We will look at early period prints and then focus on masterpieces by each of these artists.

There will also be an “artifacts table” with beautiful Japanese crafts and antiques from the last two centuries.

Tom Silver developed an interest in this art while searching for an unusual gift for his wife. That search sparked a love for Japanese art, history, and culture. Mr. Silver’s talks at libraries and other institutions showcase print masterpieces from the 350-year history of the Japanese print genre. Mr. Silver is a Cape Cod summer resident, and a New Jersey native with degrees from Drew University and Rutgers University.
