Japanese paintings hold a majestic charm which was to inspire this website.

Subtle colours help to capture scenes across Japan, often covering the natural landscape of the country and the hidden gems which can be found there.

Japanese artists were involved in several different print processes which helped to distinguish their work from other nations.

Several wooden block techniques and drawing methods have since been given specific names to help to categorise the artists of several eras, most notably between the 17th and 19th centuries.

Hiroshige is one artist featured throughout this website and his paintings are instantly recognisable to even the occasional art fan.

He worked on whole series of paintings which would fit together to produce a stunning collection of art, all inter-related and along similar themes.
