UKIYOE (Woodblock Prints)

This popular genre originally depicted daily life in the floating world of the Edo pleasure quarters but eventually developed into a sophisticated art form that greatly influenced the European impressionist school. Utamaro's sensitive depiction of women Sharaku's powerful portraits of Kabuki actors and Hokusai's dramatic landscapes have come to be the best-known works of Japanese art.
