includes prints from the Edo period "tourist stops" to silk designs meant for kimono manufacturers. Highlighted here, Japanese woodblock prints depicting women of idealized beauty--a genre called "bijinga." These women, draped in voluminous robes and adorned with golden hair pins, are subtly revealing themselves to the viewer. Japanese woodblock printing remains a special part of not only Japan's artistic tradition, but the West's as well; impressionists like van Gogh, Monet, and Cassatt all incorporated elements of Japanese printmaking into their work. The enchanting "bijinga" remains an illuminating example of Japanese artistry, craftsmanship, and originality.
features a fine collection of over 60 examples of Prehistoric Native American Pottery, most Mississippian and still intact. Examples include human and animal effigy vessels and friendship bowls. Assorted jars and bowls include examples of Hempstead, Harleton, Belcher, Avery, Blakely, Quapaw, Punctate, Taylor and more.
