Japanese Prints

The Edo Period (1603-1867) is notable for being a time when Japan was closed off politically and economically from the rest of the world. It is also the period when Japanese woodblock prints came into high fashion. Produced by artists in tandem with publishers and highly skilled block cutters, Edo period prints are the result of a collaborative culture that continues today. The themes that these artists favored - usually landscapes, portraits of bijin (beauties) or scenes from kabuki theatre - have also become deeply ingrained into the visual culture of Japan.
