In connection with the Civ at the MOA website, the MOA will showcase original works on paper in the Print Study Room on select dates each fall and winter semester for open viewing and study. This resource is designed specifically to give GE teachers more ways to engage with the MOA’s permanent collection.

Normally open by appointment only and located on the lower level of the MOA, the Print Study Room will be open Wednesday – Friday from 10 AM to 4 PM during these weeks for faculty and student convenience in seeing these works.

The Print Study Room is located on the lower level of the Museum of Art, at the entrance to the From the Vault exhibition (around the corner from the restrooms). Individuals should check backpacks at the front desk of the Museum on the main floor, as they are not allowed inside the Print Study Room. Pencils may be brought into the Print Study Room.

Prints by the celebrated seventeenth-century master Rembrandt will be on display in the Print Study Room. Few artists captured the emotion and psychology of his subjects as Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669). One of the great religious artists in western history, Rembrandt used the distinct techniques of the etching medium to bring new relevance and accessibility to revered sacred themes as well as the images of daily life.

Japanese Woodblock Prints

October 30 – November 1, 2019

Woodblock printing was widely adopted in Japan during the Edo period (1603-1868).  Most of the prints within our permanent collection fall within this time period.  The majority of them are excellent examples of “Ukiyo-e” images, roughly translated as “pictures of the floating world,” referring to scenes of leisure, entertainment, and everyday life in Japan.
