This exhibition of approximately thirty-five works will pair modern and contemporary Japanese prints and ceramics. The prints are from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s permanent collection, including selections from the Howard and Caroline Porter Collection. The Japanese ceramics of the same era are lent by Jeffrey and Carol Horvitz. Shown together, these works disclose a brilliant dialogue through shared rhythms, patterns, textures, emotions and ideas.
