The Edward Burr Van Vleck Collection of Japanese Prints
Foreword by Russell Panczenko
Introduction by Andrew Stevens

The Van Vleck collection of Japanese woodblock prints is one of the Elvehjem Museum of Art's most important collections of more than 3700 prints collected by VanVleck between 1910 and 1943, including the prints that Frank Lloyd Wright collected in Japan in the 1920s. This copiously illustrated catalog is the culmination of several years of intensive study and documentation, and is the first step in making this impressive collection accessible to museum visitors and scholars.
