About this title
Japanese woodblock prints, or ukiyo-e, occupy a singular position in world art. These "pictures of the floating world" were produced through the combined skills of artists, engravers, and printers, a cooperative effort of consummate success unparalleled elsewhere in the world. They are the art of the common man, created by artists and craftsmen of plebeian or low samurai background, they depict scenes from the everyday life and entertainments of the urban classes, and their popularity lay among these same townspeople.Language Notes:
