Origins of A Medium: Buddhist Prints

Origins of A Medium: Buddhist Prints View Works

The influence of Buddhism courses through the history of the woodblock printmaking. The first popular use of the medium in Japan occurred during the Heian period (794-1185). These antique woodblock prints were produced as acts of devotion and portrayed a vast range of imagery. Such devotional prints are exceptionally rare today and are usually unmarked or unsealed; therefore, the dating of these Buddhist art prints is always attributed.
