Red-Haired Barbarians: 40 Rare Japanese prints depicting the Dutch and other foreigners in Nagasaki and Yokohama, 1800-1865.
This is a digital exhibition of a collection of 40 Japanese woodblock prints published between 1800 and 1865, depicting Dutch traders in Nagasaki. Now extremely rare, at the time of their publication the prints were sold as souvenirs to Japanese who visited Nagasaki and perhaps hoped to catch a glimpse of these strange 'red-haired barbarians'.
