HAMBURG, GERMANY: The Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe is fortunate to have an outstanding collection of Japanese painting and prints

Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849), The Temple Honganji at Asakusa in Edo (from the series “36 Views of Mount Fuji”), 1830–31, woodblock print, 25 x 37,4 cm, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, Public Domain.

The Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe is fortunate to have an outstanding collection of Japanese painting and prints, which allows viewers to “peer over the shoulders” of these artists.

In the exhibition Copy & Paste. Repetition in Japanese Imagery, about 100 sketches, color woodcuts, hanging scrolls, books and folding screens from the East Asian Collection provide insights into the foundations of Japanese visual culture in the late Edo (1603–1868) and Meiji (1868–1912) periods. Based on these works, the show traces the creation, further development, distribution, and adaptation of pictorial motifs in Japanese culture to this day.
