THE FLOWERING OF JAPAN'S WOODBLOCK-PRINT CULTURE
Materia: Arte africano / oriental
The Museum für Ostasiatische Kunst in Cologne has conducted a major survey of its inventory of Japanese coloured woodcuts and books for the first time after more than 100 years. The result can only be described as historic. Matthi Forrer, one of the most important authorities on the subject, presents the most unusual and precious pieces.
