Japan Art Trip - Ukiyo-e -

Once loved by artists such as Gogh and Monet, the traditional Japanese artwork “ukiyo-e” originated during the early Edo period, around 1680. Ukiyo-e was art for the common people, unlike other forms of art that were exclusive to the upper class.

As the culture of ukiyo-e developed, many artists flourished including Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Hiroshige. It was during the 1800s the term “Japonisme” emerged in Europe.
