I, an antique curator, select products. How to enjoy Ukiyoe as small tips. When it comes to painting, the image of putting it in a frame is strong, but that is just a way to enjoy Western painting. At that time, Japanese people enjoyed ukiyo-e by holding it in their hands.Is it okay if I don't wear gloves? I'm often asked that, but Ukiyo-e shouldn't be touched with gloves.
Ukiyo-e is rubbed on thin Japanese paper. When I touch it with gloves, I don't feel the sensation of my fingertips, and when I hold it, I sometimes inadvertently fold the paper or rub the picture.
Of course, it is important to wipe off the oil on your hands before touching it, but you should check the thickness and weight with your actual fingertips. This is also understandable only by "actually touching Ukiyo-e". Shunga is roughly divided into handwriting and woodblock prints like other ukiyo-e. The mainstream of handwriting is a one-of-a-kind picture scroll drawn by a painter on paper or silk, and woodblock prints are mainly printed books printed on woodblock prints and braids with 12 themed spring paintings.
Buyers of hand-painted paintings were limited to some privileged classes who could ask painters to produce them, and luxurious private editions were created. With the development of woodblock technology in the latter half of the 17th century, it became possible to mass-produce spring paintings and publish low-priced editions, and it became possible for ordinary people to enjoy themselves. The history of Shunga is also a history in which the base of appreciation expands from what the lords and wealthy merchants enjoy to the emerging tradesmen of Edo.Baby delivered shown on Ukiyoe is rarely seen.
