Ukiyo-e (浮世絵, “picture[s] of the floating world”) is a form of woodcutting from Japan that also became popular in Europe from the mid-18th century and had a profound influence on the European art world of the fin de siècle. (Wikipedia).

Ukiyo-e is a genre of Japanese art which flourished from the 17th through 19th centuries. Its artists produced woodblock prints and paintings of such subjects as female beauties; kabuki actors and sumo wrestlers; scenes from history and folk tales; travel scenes and landscapes; flora and fauna; and erotica.
