In this series of four online talks, curators and conservators discuss the main themes of the exhibition Floating World: Japanese ‘ukiyo-e’ Prints. In the first two sessions, guest curators Hannah Sigur and Francesca Neglia explore the iconic images, themes and characters featured in this type of artistic creation.
In the third session, Jorge Rodrigues, senior curator at the Museum, reflects on how Calouste Gulbenkian shaped this section of his collection by purchasing almost two hundred and fifty Japanese prints between 1911 and 1923.
Finally, the Museum’s preventive conservation coordinator, Rui Xavier, explains how the 1967 floods affected this collection, which at the time was housed at the Palace of the Marquês de Pombal, while also addressing the meticulous conservation and restoration work that followed this dramatic event.
