Ukiyo-e is defined in different ways; literally it means pictures ('e') of the floating world ('ukiyo'), a term derived from a Buddhist concept pertaining to the fleeting nature of life. But during the Edo period (1615-1868), ukiyo acquired a more nuanced meaning: the impermanence of our existence became a justification to indulge in the pleasures and entertainments that are available at this fleeting moment (for a price). As such, the 'floating world' encompassed the pleasure quarters, houses of assignation, teahouses, restaurants, leisure boats, and the theater districts; that is to say, the playgrounds of the urban sophisticates. Ukiyo-e, images of these pleasures, were marketed to the residents and visitors in the flourishing capital city of Edo and mercantile center of Osaka. With time, the term ukiyo-e would expand to refer to a genre of art, primarily woodblock prints, produced in the 17th through the 19th centuries depicting a wide array of subjects including kabuki actors, sumo wrestlers, bijin (beauties), meisho (famous places), musha (warriors), and kacho (birds and flowers).
