The exhibition includes original woodblock prints from late 18th to the early 20th century by Japanese masters such as Toyokuni, Hiroshige, Kunisada, Kuniyoshi, Koson Ohara, Hiroshi Yoshida and Hiroyuki Tajima, as well as French immigrant Paul Jacoulet, among others. The prints are on loan from the George and Claire Louden Collection. The Loudens were employed by National Geographic and the United States Foreign Services and studied and organized exhibitions for United States Embassies around the world. This exhibition was organized by the Carr Gallery in Idaho Falls, Idaho and travels under the auspices of the Museum and Art Gallery Directors Association of Montana and provides complementary content for Asian works from the MMAC Permanent Collection. Also featured will be Miss Tottori from the Museum of the South Dakota State Historical Society in Pierre.
