"Picturing Japan" Exhibit, The Ringling

In the second half of the 19th century, Japan’s last years as an isolated preindustrial society were witnessed and documented by early photographers.

Though works of art in their own right, their photographs were further enhanced by the selective addition of color, painted by Japanese artists who transformed the photos in the inspired tradition of woodblock prints.

See this exhibition during regular Museum hours, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week, plus Thursdays until 8 p.m.

This exhibition is included with regular Museum admission. Call 941-358-3180 for advance tickets.
