The Artist’s Touch, The Craftsman’s Hand : Three Centuries of Japanese Prints from the Portland Art Museum will be on display through January 22, 2012. The exhibition features a selection of 250 prints that spans centuries of Japanese printmaking, including the work of such artists as Harunobu and Hokusai.
The selection is from the collection of Mary Andrews Ladd, whose donation of 750 prints in 1932 started the Museum’s interest in Japanese printmaking. The collection has since grown to “more than 2,500 works and spans from the lat 17th century to the present day” (according to PortlandArt Museum’s website).
