Biography

Ukiyo-e, or ukiyo-ye (浮世絵; Japanese pronunciation: [u.ki.jo.e]; "pictures of the floating world"), is a genre of woodblock prints and paintings that flourished in Japan primarily from the 17th through 19th centuries. Aimed at the prosperous merchant class in the urbanizing Edo period (1603–1867), depictions of beautiful women; kabuki actors and sumo wrestlers; scenes from history and folk tales; travel scenes and landscapes; flora and fauna; and erotica were amongst the more popular themes
