Shikō Munakata: A Way of Seeing

Virtual Tour | 45 MINUTES

Shikō Munakata (1903-1975) is a 20th century Japanese artist primarily known for his powerfully expressive woodblock prints. Borrowing from Japan Society’s permanent collection, virtual school tours introduce selected works of Munakata prints. Students explore bold print works inspired by Japanese folk tales, Buddhism, and nature motifs through close looking, discussion and developing meanings and activities. This interactive tour will be available year-round via video conferencing.
