‘The moon has no home’

Japanese prints on display and subject of lecture

Japanese color woodblock prints, often known as Ukiyo-e, or pictures of the floating world, are among the most collected and appreciated genres of Japanese art in both Japan and the United States. The U.Va. Art Museum possesses a striking collection of these prints from the 19th century. About 60 of the museum’s 300 prints are featured in the exhibition, “The Moon Has No Home,” on display through March 7.

In conjunction with the exhibit, Japanese art historian Sandy Kita of the University of Maryland, who co-curated the exhibit, will give a gallery talk, “Edo Then, America Now: Understanding Japanese Prints and Their Appeal,” on Nov. 23 at 2 p.m. in the museum.
