Unlike traditional ukiyo-e prints, the woodblock prints of the Emperor Meiji's reign--the famous ''Meiji period'' of 1867-1912--depicted current events rather than timeless scenes, and were printed in vivid colors that reflected the vibrancy of Japan's rush toward modernization at the turn of the century. Part commercial art, part ''photo-op'' before the fact, and part propaganda tool (lest we forget), the Meiji prints chronicle Japan's fascinating and ambivalent relations with the West, its emergence as an industrial and military power and its populist emperor.
