A selection of Japanese color woodblock prints from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, made by ukiyo-e artists who flourished during the late Edo period. From the 1860s on, these prints became popular among European artists and art collectors and so had a strong influence on Western visual culture as well.
An ukiyo-e artist, whose background, including the dates of his birth and death, is unknown. He was a master of capturing people's features using simple lines and colors, as he painted actors and sumo wrestlers with lively expressions.
