Ukiyo-e, a renowned form of Japanese art, emerged after an era of unrest and conflict.
Compared with the printed versions, paintings which were hand drawn by artists are called ''Nikuhitsu Ukiyo-e'' (hand-painted Ukiyo-e).
They also are historical materials which reflect the culture of different eras through depicted characters,
such as beautiful women or actors, and landscapes. Ink was used for painting black, while chalk and pigments were used for colors.
