Celebrated for their one-of-a-kind process and distinctive aesthetics, woodblock prints are a widely recognized as an iconic form of Japanese art

Along with paintings, prints produced from the 17th through the 19th century captured the spirit of  Ukiyo-e, a genre often translated as "pictures of the floating world". Refering to Japanese paintings and woodblock prints that originally depicted the cities' pleasure districts during the Edo Period, when the sensual attributes of life were encouraged amongst a tranquil existence under the peaceful rule of the Shoguns. These idyllic prints document the leisure activities and climate of the era, they also depict the decidedly Japanese aesthetics of beauty, poetry, nature, spirituality, love, and sex.

Choose from 199 pictures in our Traditional Japanese Woodblocks collection for your Wall Art or Photo Gift. All professionally made for Quick Shipping.
