Ukiyo-e (ooh-kee-yoh-eh) is a Japanese woodblock print or painting of famous kabuki actors, beautiful women, travel landscapes and city life from the Edo period. Ukiyo-e is significant in expressing the sensual attributes of Japanese culture from 17th to 19th century.
This woodblock print depicting the character of Umeomaru is so famous that it has become synonymous with aragoto, the flamboyant, powerful style of acting. It is one of the most sought-after roles by even contemporary kabuki actors. In 1796, artist Kabukido Enkyo portrayed Ichikawa Yaozo III as Umeomaru that showed a figure of fine appearance.
