Japanese Art is exhibited at the Prado

Woman Gathering Ear Shells and Boy, Ishikawa Toyonobu [Ishikawa Shuuha hitsu] Woodblock print, benizuri [two woodblocks each printed in a different coloured inks] 270 x 135 mm c. 1760 Madrid, Museo Nacional del Prado

The Museo del Prado is taking part in the bi-lateral Spain-Japan Year by showing, for the first time in its history, two Japanese screens as well as a selection of Japanese prints that have never previously been on public display.
The screens, to be exhibited in the Museum’s Central Gallery until 12 June, are of the Rimpa School, which spanned almost the entire Edo period (1603-1868), an era when Japan was totally isolated from foreign influences. Coinciding with this presentation of Japanese Art, the museum has launched its Japanese version of The Prado Guide for iPad.
