Japan: Modern, japanese prints from the Elise Wessels collection - Rijksmuseum 2022
Japan Modern presents an overview of Japanese printing in the first half of the twentieth century. Japan was flourishing in the years after 1900. Modern city culture offered plenty of opportunities, the landscape changed, the position of women improved and optimism abounded. At the same time, the many changes produced feelings of nostalgia.
Unique in the Netherlands, the Elise Wessels collection comprises Japanese prints from the first half of the twentieth century; outside Japan, it is counted among the best in its field.
