Mayumi Oda

(Japanese, b. 1941)

Color screenprint

Gift of the Artist 1994.77



The feminist artist Mayumi Oda portrays Manjusuri, the traditionally male bodhisattva of perfect wisdom, as a voluptuous nude woman. Twentieth-century Japanese artists present such traditional subjects in new ways and use modern printmaking techniques. Like ukiyo-e prints, black outlines delineate flat forms here, but Oda employed the 20th-century medium of screenprinting.
