View photo from The Trout Gallery's Aug. 31 opening reception of The Floating World: Ukiyo-e Prints from the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art.
This exhibition of Japanese woodblock prints, which runs trough Feb. 4, illuminates an art form springing from Japan's Edo or Tokogawa period (1615-1868). The artworks portray the ukiyo-e "floating world" in elegant, otherworldly landscapes and scenes of leisure and pleasure. Each piece was printed as part of a series.
