Edo was a place, a time period and a state of mind. The relative peace and prosperity of the Edo period fostered a culture of creativity defined by the diversions and pursuits of the style conscious classes which contrasted the conservative aesthetics of the ruling military elite. From elegant lacquerware and screens depicting seasonal landscapes to woodblock prints capturing kabuki actors and courtesans, Edo Style includes over 150 works of art.
