I'm so lucky. DH took me into Chicago to the
Smart Museum. I wanted to see the
exhibit (which closes Jan 20th).
What a fantastic exhibit! Loaded with wonderful
prints from Japanese and French artists.
The display was lovely and there were books
open to various sketches, too.
They had an i-pad (or something) that showed the
many images needed to create one print - also, video
showing how the woodblocks were hand carved.
Provided a wonderful introduction to these creative prints.
and the COLORS! Rich and elegant. Some
full of details - some more modern and classy.
Try not to miss - if you are in the neighborhood!
Special thx to Marjorie
who had a wonderful post on her blog
about this exhibit.
Did I mention I purchased
the exhibit catalog? It is loaded
with color photos ; )
This is one of the images off the web site -
