Ukiyo-e, or ‘pictures of a floating world’, was known for several genres depicting specific aspects of Japanese life. Artists created woodblock prints and paintings featuring beautiful women, shunga or “pictures of spring”, kabuki theatre actors, as well as bird and flower images and landscapes.

Prints by artists like Utamaro reflected not only changing standards of beauty in Japanese culture, but the artist's sensibility. The French term Japonisme refers to the popularity and influence of Japanese art and design among European artists in the 19th century. Famous artists like Degas, Monet, and Van Gogh all fell under the influence of this wave of Japanese art.

Dr Yupin Chung, Curator of East Asian Art, guides us on a fascinating journey to explore the concepts, styles, and trends of Ukiyo-e.
