From the George Crawford Collection
A virtual exhibition. Online only.
Beginning July 6, 2020
Over a lifetime of collecting, George Crawford sought out and acquired exceptionally fine and rare Japanese woodblock prints from both the celebrated auctions of the 1970s and 80s as well as from leading American dealers. Among the collection’s prints are those by the famous 19th century Utagawa school artists Hiroshige (1797-1858), Kunisada (1786-1865), Kuniyoshi (1797-1861) and Yoshitomi (act. 1850-60s). Additionally, 20th century landscape artists such as Kawase Shinobu (1883-1957) and Yoshida Hiroshi (1876-1950) are also well-represented.
