Meiji

MEIJI

Meiji prints were produced during the 44 year period from 1868 – 1912. Meiji translates to “Enlightened Rule”, and the period is associated with a spectacular modernization in Japan which brought the country from a medieval society to economic and military power in Asia. Accordingly, Meiji prints are characterized by liberal use of bright colors produced by synthetic dyes (Analine Dye). 

Scenes of Meiji prints range from traditional ukiyo-e themes to current events and news from the front.
