The Heavy Basket: Yokai in Japanese Prints

October 13 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Just in time for Halloween, join the Japanese Arts Foundation and Japanese Culture Center for the next installment in the Japanese Print Lecture Series with Elias Martin! 
Saturday, October 13th 1-3PM
$5 in advance, $7 at door
In the land of the rising sun deep shadows are cast and ghouls, ghosts and demons abound. Come and learn more about what makes those things that go bump in the night as depicted in your favorite Japanese prints.  Our talk will feature a wide range of works from Ukiyo-e, Shin Hanga and Sosaku Hanga that depict Yokai (Japanese goblins and otherworldly creatures). 
This seminar will examine the various depictions of supernatural creatures in Japanese prints. Participants will have the rare opportunity to examine original prints that are often only seen in books or behind museum glass. The seminar will provide a foundation for an understanding of Japanese prints with an attention to history, production techniques, connoisseurship, and collecting strategies.
