Reply to "Printmaking in Japan"

Thank you yoko for this interesting topic.

I found a little bit of information at the following website:

The popular theater of Japan, kabuki, helped the Ukiyo-e print to flourish; portraits of the most famous actors in dramatic roles were particular favorites. The artist most associated with this period is Tóshûsai Sharaku (flourished 1790-95). His prints are highly melodramatic, emphasizing exaggerated facial lines and beautiful costumes.

I am not sure if the image is from the Ukiyo-e period, it was not on the same website and I have no precise information about it, except that it is a Japanese woodblock print.
