Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday.

Today’s show: “Yokohama 1868–1912: When Pictures Learned to Shine” is on view at the Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt through Sunday, January 29. The exhibition, comprised of more than 250 woodblock prints and historical photographs, looks at how photography supplanted the popular ukiyo-e prints, particularly in Yokohama, the port city near where Admiral Perry weighed anchor in 1853, which contributed to opening Japan to the West.
