This course introduces people to the vibrant world of Japanese woodblock prints. Beginning in the 1600s, prints captured the energy of the new Edo period urban culture from kabuki actors to beauties of the pleasure quarters. In the 1800s, Hokusai and Hiroshige combined European one-point perspective with Japanese landscapes to present a new view of the land. Artists of the late 19th century recorded the rapid industrialization and modernization of the country. By the early 1920s, emerging artists like Hasui created nostalgic views of the country's past for an international audience. .
