What is "Ukiyo-e 浮世絵"?
Ukiyoe is a world-class Japanese art form that has influenced painters outside of Japan.
Ukiyoe is an art form that was originally created in Japan and developed during the Edo period (1603-1868).

As motifs, "busyo-e" depicting military commanders of the previous era, "bijinga" depicting beautiful women in brothels, and "yakusha-e" depicting Kabuki actors, etc., were painted covering the Ukiyo period, and thus came to be called "Ukiyo-e".
