This page is a personal recommendation by the staff of artelino for some ukiyo-e internet sites - artist biographies, signatures, galleries, auctions, message boards, associations, magazines.
Ukiyo-e - Pictures of the Floating World
Hans Olof Johansson's homepage is on the Internet since 1995. A pioneer and probably still the most popular site about ukiyo-e. It offers a gallery, a lively question and answer message board, ukiyo-e signatures and a large collection of links. The link list is unique and there is hardly an ukiyo-e related web site that is not listed by Olof.
A site by John Fiorillo from Berkely University. It offers a plethora of information on scholarship level. You find biographies of classical Edo, Shin hanga and Sosaku hanga artists plus articles on selected topics of interest. Each article is supplemented by literature references.
This web site is devoted to the needs and interests of serious shin hanga collectors. The scholarly contents of this web site is contributed and maintained by the members of this association with the name "The Shin Hanga Skull & Bones Society". A lot of pages are public, some are reserved for members.
These are the virtual meeting places of ukiyo-e fans from all over the world where you can exchange views or ask questions.
There is no art magazine devoted exclusively to ukiyo-e. But there are several for Asian art which cover also Japanese prints.
