Japanese Woodblock PrintsIngram
This book lifts the veil on a much-loved but little-understood art form by presenting
the 200 most exceptional Japanese woodblock prints in their historical context.
Ranging from the 17th-century development of decadent ukiyo-e, or “pictures of the
floating world,” to the decline and later resurgence of prints in the early 20th century,
the images collected in this edition make up an unmatched record not only of a
unique genre in art history, but also of the shifting mores and cultural development of
Japan. Exclusive reproductions from museums and private collections.
