Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Two Geisha and Porter in Wind and Rain at Night
Artist: Kitagawa Utamaro
Creation Date: 1801
Origin: Japan
Medium: Woodcut print

Kitagawa Utamaro was a Japanese artist who was born in 1753 and died in 1806. Utamaro is one of the most recognizable ukiyo-e designers. Ukiyo-e prints greatly influenced Western artists as well as the west’s view of Japanese art. Utamaro’s images often depict women with elongated features and exaggerated proportions. In this particular image, a man holding a lantern is escorting two geishas through the rain at night. This piece is part of Volume 2 of “Ehon Shiki no Hana” (Flowers of the Four Seasons.)

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
