About the Site

This site is intended to help students, collectors and researchers better understand the Ukiyo-e technique. Taking the Davison Art Center Collection of 18th and 19th century Japanese prints as its starting point, the site focuses on techniques utilized in prints from the collection, and is not meant to be a survey of Japanese prints or a history of Ukiyo-e. Photographs and video clips show demonstrations of the techniques by master printmaker Keiji Shinohara. These demonstrations are accompanied by traditional prints from the DAC collection, and contemporary prints by Keiji Shinohara.
