Ukiyo-­‐e,

 prints
 and
 paintings
 that
 flourished
  in
  Japan
  from
  the
  17th
  through
  19th
  centuries.
 
  During
  the
  Edo
  Period
  (1615-­‐1868),
  a

  This
  is
  the
  reason
 for
 woodblock
 prints
 of
 the
 Edo
 period
 to
  mostly
  depict
  the
  seductive
  courtesans
  and
  exciting
  kabuki
  actors
  of
  the
  urban

  districts.

 The
  depictions
  of
  Ukiyo-­‐e
  changed
  from
  sadness
  of
 life
 to
 portraying
 the
 pleasurable
 side
 of
 the
 life
  in
  Edo
  (present
  day
  Tokyo)
  and
  other
  major
  cities.
  Not
  only
  Ukiyo-­‐e
  is
  a
  vision
  on
  the
  philosophy
  of
  the
  carefree
  and
  liberated
  living,
  in
  fact,
  if
  studied
 

in
  greater
  depth
  the
  artworks
  relay
  the
  rich
  history
 that
 surrounded
 the
 Japanese
 culture.
 
  Unlike
  the
  western
  art,
  Ukiyo-­‐e
  print
  contains
  many
  design
  elements
  that
  are
  different.
  The
  Japanese
 print
 is
 intended
 to
 be
 a
 flat
 space
 on
 a
  flat
  piece
  of
  paper.
  The
  illusion
  of
  depth
  in
  western
 art
 does
 not
 exist
 in
 Ukiyo-­‐e
 prints.
  There
 are
 two
 important
 periods
 for
 Ukiyo-­‐e.
 The
  Edo
  period,
  which
  comprises
  ukiyo-­‐e
  from
  its
  origins
  in
  the
  1620s
  until
  about
  1867;
  this
  was
  largely
 a
 period
 of
 calm.
 This
 commercial
 form
 of
  art
  developed
  during
  that
  time.
  As
  time
  passed,
  their
  subject
  matter
  started
  to
  include
  famous
  romantic
  vistas
  and
  eventually,
  in
  the
  final
  years
  of
  the
  nineteenth
  century,
  dramatic
  historical
  events.
  These
  pictures
  could
  be
  produced
  in
  great
  quantity
 and
 featured
 popular
 scenes
 that
 attracts
  the
  rich
  townspeople
  of
  that
  period.
  Initially
  Ukiyo-­‐e
 was
 considered
 as
 a
 low
 class
 art
 for
 the
  non-­‐elite
  classes,
  but
  its
  artistic
  and
  technical
  aspect
  is
  always
  impressive.
  To
  understand
  the
  depictions,
  one
  requires
  extremely
  high
  level
  of
  visual,
  textual,
  and
  cultural
  literacy.
  This
  is
 

because
  during
  the
  earliest
  days,
  Ukiyo-­‐e
  images
  and
  texts
  frequently
