       -----  Ukiyo-e  -----

              Ukiyo-e is the Japanese art of woodblock prints, from the seventeenth century, "Edo Period" (1600 -1868). Ukiyo-e means "Pictures of the floating world". They depicted Kabuki actors, beautiful women at the beginning. Later, Ukiyo-e artists started depicting scenes of travel & nature.

                  Hokusai is best known for his "Thirty-Six Views of Mt.Fuji" and his "Great Wave" (below, left photo) is the most famous work in the series.    Middle: Red Fuji  Right: Mount Fuji in Summer / Black Fuji
