Japanese print

Japanese print, fine art developed in 17th-century Japan. The artist drew a pattern onto a wood block and a carver cut the pattern, leaving only a portion of the surface raised. The design could be reproduced many times by applying ink to its surface and printing it on paper. Printmaking was originally done in black and white, but color techniques were introduced by the mid-1700s.
