Images carved onto wooden blocks used to create colorful prints on paper are among the most famous Japanese art forms. These prints, popular in Japan from the 17th through the 19th centuries, are known as “Ukiyo-e,” which translates as “pictures from the floating world.” “Ukiyo-e” artists produced prints in a variety of subject matter including actors in the Kabuki theater, female portraiture, folktales and mythology and landscapes.
