The Floating World: Masterpieces of Edo Japan from the Worcester Art Museum

After centuries of conflict and war, Japan’s Edo period (1603–1868) was a time of peace, stability, and economic growth. Enjoy more than 130 woodblock prints and painted scrolls from one of history’s most vibrant artistic eras. 

These “pictures of the floating world” depict the lifestyle, pleasures, and interests of the urban population— from samurais, geishas, and kabuki actors to boat parties, palaces, and lush landscapes.

Not to be missed, this presentation marks the first time the Worcester Art Museum is touring its famed collection of Japanese artworks. 

The Floating World: Masterpieces of Edo Japan from the Worcester Art Museum  will be on view starting February 11, 2024 through June 30, 2024.
