"This exhibition brings together prints from the most renowned ukiyo-e artists of the 18th and 19th centuries—including Harunobu, Utamaro, Eishi and Hiroshige—along with Hokusai’s most beloved prints, Great Wave off Kanagawa and Red Fuji. These Japanese woodblock prints demonstrate an evocative play between delicate ink lines and rich blocks of color in portraits of beautiful women and kabuki actors, jewel-like landscapes of famous places, and more...this installation introduces the region to a remarkable collection of prints, all taken from early impressions and in excellent condition."

Don't be an idiot. Go see the prints at Seattle Asian Art Museum soon. Free on Thursday.
