The subject matter portrayed in this print series contrasts with that shown in the ukiyo-e prints of the Edo period. Ukiyo-e prints depict scenes from the culture of the floating world; beautiful women, courtesans, geisha and the theatre. In contrast, Gekko’s work shows normal daily life and the real lives of the farmers and merchants.
