3 Ukiyo-e, -1 Islamic, -1 Impressionist, -14 Cubist, -8 Abstract and 1 Renaissance!

Ukiyo-e (浮世絵, Ukiyo-e), "pictures of the floating world", is a genre of Japaneseand paintings produced between the 17th and the 20th centuries. it mostly featured landscapes, historic tales, theatre, and pleasure. Ukiyo is a rather impetuous urban culture that has bloomed in popularity. Although the Japanese were more strict and had many prohibitions it did not affect the rising merchant class and therefore became a floating art form that did not bind itself to the normal ideals of society.

People that chose Ukiyo-e art tend to be more simplistic yet elegant. They don't care much about new style but are comfortable in creating their own. They like the idea of living for the moment and enjoy giving and receiving pleasure. They may be more agreeable than other people and do not like to argue. They do not mind following traditions but are not afraid to move forward to experience other ideas in life. They tend to enjoy nature and the outdoors. They do not mind being more adventurous in their sexual experiences. They enjoy being popular and like being noticed. They have their own unique style of dress and of presenting themselves. They may also tend to be more business oriented or at the very least interested in money making adventures. They might make good entrepreneurs. They are progressive and adaptable.

When I was a kid, my Dad had the art bug bad. As part of that itch, he bought lots and lots of books on art, including a Time-Life series on artists, which covered from the renaissance up. I spent hours and hours as a kid pouring through those books. My college advisor always tried to make me take Art Appreciation, cause he thought that would make me a well rounded person. Seeing the size of the textbook I would have to lug to class every day, and after years spent drowning myself in the stuff, I chose not to.

I am really weak on more modern stuff, say after the 1950s. Can't know everything.
