What does this mean?

Hello Nicholas,

This pair of antique woodblock prints stands as a testament to the intricate artistry of traditional Japanese printmaking. Originating from a bygone era, likely during the Edo period (1603–1868) or Meiji period (1868–1912), these prints showcase the craftsmanship and aesthetic sensibilities of the time.

The Edo period, characterized by relative peace and cultural flourishing, witnessed the development of woodblock printing as a popular art form. Artists often produced ukiyo-e prints, capturing scenes of the “floating world” that included landscapes, kabuki actors, beautiful women, and more.

The Meiji period marked a transformative era, witnessing Japan’s embrace of modernization and openness to the world. Artists continued to create woodblock prints during this time, blending traditional techniques with contemporary themes.
