Japanese printmaking tradition
The Attractions of Nishiki-e, an exhibition of Japanese multi-coloured woodblock printing invented in the 1760s, will be opened today at 6pm.
Nishiki-e is considered to be one of the origins of multi-colour printing and it's technique is used primarily in ukiyo-e, which is single woodblock printing, with the colour black developed some 100 years ago. Nishiki-e printing, however, is created by carving a separate woodblock for every colour, and using them in a stepwise manner.
Organised jointly by the Japan Foundation and the National Discovery Museum, the exhibition focuses on yakusha-e, one of the popular themes of nishiki-e - often referred to as "actor prints" in English.
'The Attractions of 'Nishiki-e' is on view at the National Discovery Museum, Pipitplearn 1, until December 20, from 10am to 6pm (except Mondays). Call 02-225-2777 for more details.
