'Seduction: Japan's Floating World,' now open at the Asian Art Museum

“Seduction: Japan’s Floating World,” works from the John C. Webber collection, now open at theAsian, brings you all the glitz, glamour, drama, eroticism and entertainment of Edo Japan. Fifty works from ukiyo to kimonos to scrolls to objects d’ art allow us to enter this world of sex for sale - delightful, deceptive, decorative and for most of the women involved in the sex trade, exploitative and ultimately tragic.
