Monogatari: the art of storytelling in Japanese woodblock prints at Oriental Museum in Durham, January – May 2022

Part of Lindisfarne Gospels 2022 'Inspired By' programme.

In partnership with the National Museum of Japanese History and with the support of the Japanese Embassy, Monogatari co-curated exhibition will offer the first opportunity for visitors to enjoy the J. P. Scott Collection of Japanese woodblock prints donated to the Oriental Museum in 2019.

The fascinating exhibition explores how colourful Japanese prints were used to illustrate famous tales of samurai, travellers and heroes during the 18th and 19th centuries and how, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this style evolved to tell real-life news stories of conflict during the Sino-Japanese and Russo-Japanese wars.
