"The Floating World: Japanese Prints and Textiles from the Permanent Collection"
The Dalton Gallery is exhibiting Agnes Scott's collection of Japanese "ukiyo-e" or "floating world" woodblock prints. Fashioned during the 18th- and 19th-centuries, these artworks capture the quintessentially modern experience of a world that is bursting with sensation and always changing. Featuring over thirty works on paper and a twelve-foot silk textile, the show offers a view of Japanese culture during a period when global markets were expanding and social hierarchies were becoming more porous. Donated by Margaret R. Law '25, artists include Hiroshige, Utamara, and Hokusai among others.
