Popular Prints in France and in Japan

The Christian at death / the sinner at death, the first half of the 20th century, Private collection

The exhibition juxtaposes French Epinal prints and Japanese Otsue and Nishikie woodblock prints, all of which were popular art formats among common people in the 19th to early 20th century, and compares both in terms of their socio-cultural significance. The show also focuses on how Epinal prints conquered Europe, and how Japan assumes a special position within this particular artistic area in East Asia.
