Exhibit at Penn State's Palmer Museum of Art: Floating Between Worlds: New Research on Japanes Prints in the Permanent Collection
|Katsushika Hokusai, Fuji from Shichirigahama (Soshushichirigahama), from the series Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji (Fugaku sanjurokkei) [Seven-league Coast near Kamakura], c. 1830, woodblock print. Gift of William E. Harkins, 79.24.|
Over the last several decades, Dr. William Harkins donated a sizable number of Japanese woodblock prints to the Palmer Museum of Art. Researching and contextualizing this collection became the basis for a joint internship between the museum and the Asian Studies Program, under the direction of Dr. Charlotte Eubanks, assistant professor of Comparative Literature, Japanese, and Asian Studies. This exhibition features a selection of prints researched by undergraduate interns and curated by Dr. Eubanks.
