Frank Lloyd Wright’s Japanese Print Collection at the Chazen Museum of Art

In support of the 2021 East Asia in the Upper Midwest teacher program, a selection of Japanese color woodcuts previously owned by Frank Lloyd Wright will be on view at the Chazen Museum of Art from July 6 through the end of 2021. The selection of thirteen prints mainly feature landscape views by Utagawa Hiroshige, an artist whose compositions especially interested Wright. Also included is an impression of Katsushika Hokusai’s famous print The Great Wave. To experience these color woodcuts in person, visit the Asian galleries on the third floor of the museum’s Chazen building. Members of the Visitor Services team at the front desk can provide directions. For information about the Chazen’s location and open hours, visit
