Modern Japanese Prints: 1868–1989
The show includes stop-in-your-tracks stunners by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-1892) who lived his life on the cusp between old and new Japan. Garnered from private collections, these Yoshitoshis from the 36 Ghosts series display his technical brilliance–vignetted color and the exactitude of a fine pen and ink drawing rendered through woodblock printing–as well as his mastery of color, texture and complex composition.
The Carnegie moves new work into its contemporary galleries on a regular basis. In years past I have seen gorgeous works by Richard Diebenkorn, Peter Doig, Laura Owens, Luc Tuymans, Rachel Whiteread, Doris Salcedo, various paintings by The Germans (Richter, Kiefer, Baselitz and Polke) as well as a stunning Joan Mitchell (above.)
