Developed during the Edo period of Japanese history (1615-1868), Ukiyo-e art frequently incorporated themes from classical, literary, and historical sources. Favorite subjects of Ukiyo-e artists were beautiful women. Ming-Ju Sun's 30 exquisite renderings feature these lovely ladies in elegant kimonos playing a musical instrument, boating, dancing, strolling, and gazing in a mirror. Dover Original. 11 color illustrations on covers.
