The Fowler Museum at UCLA

In 2008, the Fowler Museum received a donation of over two hundred examples of early 19th- mid 20th century e-gasuri (pictures made a using a rustic type of Japanese ikat cloth) from Dr. Jeffrey Krauss of Potomac, Maryland. Fowler in Focus: Japanese Pictorial Ikats from the Krauss Collection shares approximately 30 of these woven textiles, featuring "highly imaginative pictorial motifs of sake-swilling imps, Buddhist saints in the form of pop-up dolls, turtles trailing seaweed as longevity symbols, battleships at sea, and many others."
