Evening Talk with Dr Clare Pollard, Curator of Japanese Art at the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology Oxford

In conjunction with our exhibition at Kirkcudbright Galleries Japan: Art and Inspiration, Dr Clare Pollard will introduce the great Japanese woodblock print designer Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858). Hiroshige created many views of Mount Fuji over the course of his long career, depicting the sacred mountain in different seasons and weather conditions and from various viewpoints.Using examples from the exhibition, Clare will discuss the development of Hiroshige’s landscape prints, the process and techniques of traditional Japanese woodblock print-making, and the impact of Hiroshige’s designs on leading European artists of the period.

Date: 10th May | Time: 7pm | ages 16+ and families | cost: free
