Bijutsu Sekai Free Creative Commons • Japanese Woodblock Prints
Explore the beauty of Japanese art, through these digitally enhanced vintage sketches from the Meiji period. Artwork from our own original edition of Bijutsu Sekai, a beautiful collection of woodblock prints from Watanabe Seitei (1851–1918). As one of the first Japanese artists to visit Europe, his kachōga approach was derived from blending Western realism with delicate colours. All these Japanese illustrations are downloadable for free in high-resolution printable quality under the CC0 license.
