    Scope and Content

    The Grunwald Center's collection of 40,000 works on paper includes 950 prints by Japanese Edo and Meiji period artists. The Center acquired many of these prints in 1965 from the Estate of Frank Lloyd Wright (American architect, 1867-1959). Artists represented in this impressive group include Kitagawa Utamaro, Katsushika Hokusai, Utagawa Hiroshige and Tsukioka Yoshitoshi.
    The following collection guide comprises a selection from the Center's archive of Japanese prints and is arranged chronologically by Japanese periods: Middle Edo (approximately 1704 to 1789), Late Edo (approximately 1789 to 1868) and Meiji (1868 to 1912). Descriptions of prints included in this guide are based on cataloguing completed for the Center by Roger S. Keyes in the 1980s.
