Ukiyo-e printmaking dates from the 17th Century, with early prints being black and white; colour coming in as dies and pigments were morereadily available, and prints were made by carving more than one block.  The prints were finely carved from hardwood with enormous skill, but were not percieved as fine art, being produced by the thousand as commercial art.  As the prints became older, many have been destroyed and not respected for the skill they represent, making surviving prints in good condition very rare and collectable.
