Maharishi commemorates artworks from the Japanese Ukiyo-e art period for Autumn Winter 2023.

The ukiyo-e art period refers to a genre of Japanese art that flourished from the 17th to the 19th century. Ukiyo-e translates to "pictures of the floating world" and primarily depicts scenes from the urban culture of Edo (now Tokyo). 

Masters of ukiyo-e, known as painters or printmakers, pioneered woodblock printing for efficient reproduction, a breakthrough in the art form. Woodblock printing allowed for efficient reproduction of images and widespread distribution, making art accessible to a larger audience. The process involved carving the desired image onto a wooden block, which was then inked and pressed onto paper. This technique allowed ukiyo-e artists to create vibrant and detailed prints with multiple colors and intricate designs.
