Tattoos in Japanese Prints

The Radcliffe Club of San Francisco invites members of the Harvard Club of San Francisco to a private docent tour of the "Tattoos in Japanese Prints" exhibit at the Asian Art Museum.

Sunday, July 21, 2019
9:45 - 11:30 a.m.

Asian Art Museum
200 Larkin St. San Francisco, CA 94102

This exhibit recounts how large-scale, densely composed pictorial tattoos emerged in 19th-century Japan in tandem with woodblock prints depicting tattooed heroes of history and myth. More than 60 superb prints from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston explore the interplay between ink on paper and ink on skin.

Following the tour, you are invited to join the group for coffee/lunch at the museum cafe. Coffee and lunch will begin at approximately 11:30am. Afterwards, you may re-visit the exhibits on your own.

This event is a joint event of the Harvard and Radcliffe Clubs of SF. It is open to members of the clubs and their guests.
