Drawing in 19th Century Japan at the Pulitzer

Living Proof features nearly eighty works by artists including Hokusai, Kuniyoshi, and Yoshitoshi. Best known as print designers, their compositions were mediated in the final woodblock print through the contributions of separate carvers and printers. This exhibition thus offers a rare opportunity to witness the artist’s hand directly. In many cases, drawings were also intended as a didactic tool to instruct or encourage drafting practices among students. By highlighting the often-unseen improvisations, alterations, and even imperfections that have been excluded from a celebrated history of printmaking in Japan, Living Proof reframes these drawings as artworks in their own right.
