AVA 380 - The Floating World: Edo Prints and Printmaking

Course Units: 1.0
(Not Offered this Academic Year) Students will produce a portfolio of woodblock prints based on an exploration of the history of Japanese prints during the Edo period (1603-1867). Ukiyo-e, or “floating-world pictures,” depicted the urban pleasures offered in the imperial capital Edo (modern-day Tokyo). The themes and individual artistic styles, first studied, then interpreted by the students in their prints, include: cityscapes and landscapes; representations beautiful men and women in bijinga; the exotic encounter with the west; and explicit erotic imagery.
