This resource provides access to digital images of a significant portion of the Barry Rosensteel Japanese Print Collection, which was donated to the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. The Rosensteel Collection consists of a total of 126 woodblock prints.  “While the earliest print dates to 1760, most of the prints were produced in the 1800s, while others were created in the 1900s. The work of over forty artists is represented in the collection. The images portray Japanese culture through detailed depictions of portraits, landscapes, wildlife and theatrical performances, taking into account some of Japan’s rich history.” (University of Pittsburgh Library System)
