The Kimono in Print: 300 Years of Japanese Design - Worcester Art Museum
Thursday, July 15, 2021, 11:00 AM until 12:00 PM
Join our docent for a look at the Worcester Art Museum’s exhibition, The Kimono in Print: 300 Years of Japanese Design. This is the first show devoted to examining the kimono as a major source of inspiration and experimentation in Japanese print culture, from the Edo period (1603–1868) to the Meiji period (1868–1912). This dialogue between print and kimono design is illustrated by Japanese prints, primarily drawn from the Museum’s 3,000 Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock. Central to The Kimono in Print is a one-of-a-kind contemporary wedding kimono by Chiso, the important 465-year-old, Kyoto-based kimono house. The Worcester Wedding Kimono is the first ever kimono commissioned as an artwork for an art museum. We will examine the process of creating the kimono. Hosted by Chevy Chase At Home.
