PARTNERS IN PRINT: ARTISTIC COLLABORATION AND THE UKIYO-E MARKET. Julie Nelson Davis. University of Hawaii Press, Honolulu, 2015. 260 pp. with 101 ills. (97 col.). 26 x 20 cm. LC 2014-26817 ISBN 9780824839383 In English.
Publisher's description: This compelling account of collaboration in the genre of ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world) offers a new approach to understanding the production and reception of print culture in early modern Japan. It provides a corrective to the perception that the ukiyo-e tradition was the product of the creative talents of individual artists, revealing instead the many identities that made and disseminated printed work. Julie Nelson Davis demonstrates by way of examples from the later eighteenth century that this popular genre was the result of an exchange among publishers, designers, writers, carvers, printers, patrons, buyers, and readers. By recasting these works as examples of a network of commercial and artistic cooperation, she offers a nuanced view of the complexity of this tradition and expands our understanding of the dynamic processes of production, reception, and intention in floating world print culture. Four case studies give evidence of what constituted modes of collaboration among artistic producers in the period.
