A beautiful new hand printed Japanese Ukiyoe Woodblock Art Dress!
Ukiyoe is a style of wood block printing created and developed in Japan during the Edo era (1603-1867).
"Uki" means floating and "yo" means world. "e"in Ukiyoe means picture(s). So Ukiyoe literally means "pictures of the floating world."
Ukiyoe prints commonly describe Japanese landscapes, the everyday life of commoners, kabuki actors, sumo wrestlers and beautiful women.
I believe this Ukiyoe print was created by Kitagawa Utamaro (1753-1806).
Utamaro is one of the most well-known ukiyoe artists among all masters of the Floating World. Utamaro was first a student of Toriyama Sekien, and he initially used the name Toyoaki and changed to Utamaro only later. Utamaro's career reached its height in the Tenmei and Kansei eras (1781-1801).
