THE ART. Woodblock printing, known as moku hanga, is a traditional artistic medium in Japan. It is most associated with its use in ukiyo-e or ‘floating world’ prints from the Edo period, which lasted until 1868. This striking print is thought to have been created later, around the start of the twentieth century, as a pattern for a kimono design. It depicts dwellings sitting among rivers and cherry trees in bloom.
THE FINAL WORD. As William Morris said, "Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."
