"Japanese Prints in the Collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston"

This richly illustrated book invites the reader to discover the art of ukiyoe ("images of the floating World"), the most relevant artistic phenomenon of Japan of the Edo era (1603-1868). Through 120 splendid prints by the greatest masters, coming from the extraordinary collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, it provides a complete overview of the cultural and artistic history of this movement. The prints made in Japan between the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 20th century revolutionized the visual culture of the time, allowing even those who did not belong to the ruling elite to enjoy works of art created by true artists in their homes, who staged the city's entertainment culture, known as the Floating World (ukiyo), through paintings, illustrated books but above all colorful woodcuts.
