Google news today turned up an item from Pasadena introducing an exhibition of Japanese prints from the Frank Lloyd Wright collection, at the Norton Simon Museum there, from July 29, 2005 - January 9, 2006.

Here's the exhibition website:

And here's a quote from the description:

"An Assortment of Beauties: Japanese Woodblock Prints Collected by Frank Lloyd Wright

The exhibition features Japanese woodblock prints devoted to images of beautiful women. This theme is one component of a school of picture making known as ukiyo-e, which can be translated as 'pictures of the floating world.' Beautiful women (bijin) were depicted alone as well as in small and large groups, entertaining themselves by playing games, preparing themselves for the night, or promenading though the city with their attendants or children."
