Kasei bunka 化政文化
KEY WORD : art history / general terms
The culture of the Bunka 文化 (1804-18) and Bunsei 文政 eras (1818-30), and by extension, that of the late Edo period as a whole. It is characterized by a diversity of art trends, especially in painting. The genres that flourished during the period included: *bunjinga 文人画, *youfuuga 洋風画, *Maruyama-Shijouha 円山四条派, and *Fukko yamato-eha 復古大和絵派. Mass-production of these arts (including *ukiyo-e 浮世絵 prints), was also introduced and was supported by towns people. Some fields, particularly ceramics, achieved notable success during this time, particularly in the production of porcelain.
