What is a mitate-e? (*know titles, artists) how does it relate to these works? drawing done on paper; specialist carves it into wood; courtesans/prostitutes (clothes and hair - long flowing, lots of layers; beaver tail), actors, warriors. A parody picture: titles, artists, era: edo, medium: woodblock prints, format: book i. ii. iii. One artist innovated woodblock prints; created an innovative production method; made more prints in a short amount of time. Parody: take on an old folktale about someone stealing tofu; *juxtaposition of old tale and courtesans acting it out in a non-serious manner. Top right: war - both (chinese soldiers on left, uniforms on japanese side is more victorian/european style); just changed/replaced far left panel - pieces was recycled three times. Four genres: heroes, explosions/frontlines, sea battles, death: rendering of explosions changed: became more accurate and frequent with time.
