YOKOHAMA-EI WOOD BLOCK PRINTS WERE PRODUCED IN LARGE NUMBERS DURING THE PERIOD 1853 TO 1868. MOST HAVE NOT SURVIVED. SINCE JAPAN WAS ISOLATED FOR 250 YEARS, FOREIGNERS WERE A RARE SIGHT, AND PEOPLE WERE CURIOUS TO KNOW ABOUT THEM. MANY OF THESE ART WORKS WERE DESIGNED AND PRODUCED BY PEOPLE WHO HAD NEVER EVEN SEEN A FOREIGNER OR VISITED A FOREIGN LAND. YOKOHAMA-EI PRINTS ARE EXECUTED IN THE TRADITION OF UKIYO-EI PRINTS, WHICH WERE POPULAR IN JAPAN BUT ALSO GREATLY INFLUENCED THE IMPRESSIONIST AND MODERN ARTISTS OF FRANCE IN THE LATE 19TH CENTURY.
