About Ukiyo-e, The Japanese Wood Block Prints
Ukiyo-e are Japanese genre paintings made using woodblock prints. Ukiyo-e paintings boomed during a period of Japanese history known as the Edo or Tokugawa period (1603-1868). Now the most popular and famous form of Japanese visual art, you probably recognize these genre paintings and might even recall their popular depictions of lively theatre acts or rowdy cantinas. In fact, their bold composition and bright, inviting colors instigated the now famous impressionist movement in the Western art world. Those influenced by Hokusai’s work in Paris include the famous Vincent van Gogh (1854-1890) and Edgar Degas (1834-1917). Thus, Ukiyo-e became recognized, respected, and valued by people around the world.
