MIT Visualizing Cultures
The remarkably swift "Westernization" of Japan in the late-19th and early-20th centuries was most vividly captured in popular woodblock prints. Images from the Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf Collection at the
Museum of Fine Arts, Boston illustrate the great political, social, cultural, and industrial transformations that took place.
