Floating Beauty: Women in the Art of Ukiyo-e

Made up entirely of woodblock prints created in the ukiyo-e style, this exhibition on display at Mennello Museum of American Art highlights female characters in literature, kabuki theatre, and poetry.

Floating Beauty: Women in the Art of Ukiyo-e examines historical perspectives on women and their depiction in art in Edo Period Japan (1615 – 1858). Made up entirely of woodblock prints created in the ukiyo-e style, this exhibition at Mennello Museum of American Art highlights female characters in literature, kabuki theatre, and poetry; the courtesans and geisha of the Yoshiwara district; and wives and mothers from different social classes performing the duties of their station, in order to gain some insight into the lives of women in pre-modern Japan.
