The Lenoir C. Wright Collection

The Lenoir C. Wright Collection of Japanese woodblock prints at the Weatherspoon Art Museum is the only collection of its kind and depth in North Carolina and numbers close to 400 hundred images. Due to their light sensitivity, prints from the Wright collection are exhibited at WAM on an occasional basis. Although these 14 prints are not on display at this time, they reflect themes found in the current exhibition Seven Masters: 20th century Japanese Woodblock Prints: bajina or beautiful women, landscapes, and Kabuki actors. Guests may view additional images from the Wright Collection online through our collection page.
