Utagawa Kunimasa, detail of The Actor Iwai Kumetaro as the Kamuro Tayori from the Shimbara District in Kyoto, 1796. Mary A. Ainsworth Bequest, 1950.473

Some of the museum’s most important Japanese woodblock prints are featured in a current exhibition that recently traveled to three venues in Japan. But who was Mary Ainsworth? And how did she develop such a fine collection? Kevin R. E. Greenwood, Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, answers these questions as he discusses recent discoveries about Ainsworth and her collection. A reception will follow and galleries remain open until 7:30 p.m.
