Books Info:

Ukiyo-e Greeting Cards free pdf Produced to accompany the publication of "Ukiyo-e" by Gian Carlo Calza, this fine selection of cards includes masterpieces from Hokusai, Hiroshige and Utamaro amongst several others. The paintings, scrolls and prints featured here have been chosen to reflect the six great themes of the floating world - theatre, tradition, nature, landscape, town life and feminine beauty - developed by ukiyo-e artists to satisfy the demands and tastes of their customers. These remarkable images illustrate the tastes, habits and passions of the people of Edo: fashionable scenes set in the sleepless city, festive excursions and firework displays, posters promoting kabuki actors and performances. Courtesans and geisha were also an important part of life and art in Edo and ukiyo-e artists interpreted them as the ultimate symbol of female beauty and elegance. This elegantly packaged product provides a selection of pictures from the very best artists of the ukiyo-e school and this beautiful collection will make an original and delightful gift at any time of year.
