Floating Beauty: Women in the Art of Ukiyo-e examines the historical perspectives on the depiction of women in art during the Edo Period in Japan (1615 – 1858). This exhibition highlights female characters painted on woodblock prints, all created in the ukiyo-e style.
Ukiyo-e, translates literally as “pictures of the floating world” and it is a Japanese art form which flourished during a period marked by drastic social, political, and economic change as the country went under military control of the Tokugawa shogunate.
