About this Collection

The Scripps College Collection of Japanese Prints, which numbers over 1500 works with more than 500 works by the artists Chikanobu (1838-1912) and Yoshitoshi (1839-1892), is primarily a teaching collection, with woodblock prints and illustrated books from the late 17th century to late 20th century. Most Japanese print designers working in the 18-19th centuries are represented, including more than 150 works by Hiroshige (1797-1858). Various donors have contributed to the Collection, including Lilian Miller (in 1944), Mrs. James S. (Emiline) Johnson (from 1946), Fred and Estelle Marer (from 1993), Dr. and Mrs. William Ballard (in 1993), Mrs. Ruth LeMaster (in 2002) and the Aoki Endowment for Japanese Arts and Culture (from 1998).
