This time is considered the period of the heyday of the art of Ukiyo-e. The first half – the middle of the XIX century – his last period, when a new generation of masters appeared on the stage. At this time, the leading genres were still bidjinga and yakusya-e. However, their development, in comparison with the previous century, has gone in other ways.
The largest masters, such as Uta-gavaToekuni, Hosoda Aisi, Rakisentai Airy, Kasey Eisen and others, created works that were not inferior to the engraving of the 1780s and 1790s, but oriented to the viewer of modern times, possessing their special expressiveness and therefore capable of vie with it. The same subjects in the late biding differ in their language – realistic, we can say more “mundane” than before.
