An ukiyo-e print is a woodblock print, the result of a complex process. Based on a drawing by the artist, in this case Kunisada II, the carver would prepare wood blocks, each to print a specific color. The publisher, with the help of a printer, would then supervise the printing of each color, following the registration marks, which allowed each color to be printed precisely where it belonged.
During the Edo period, these ukiyo-e (pictures of a floating world or pictures of an ever-changing world) came to refer to the sensual and hedonistic pleasures of people. Tea ceremonies performed by licensed geisha in elegant surroundings were the most popular subjects.
