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.
