http://lcweb2.loc.gov/pp/jpdhtml/jpdabt.html
The online division of Prints and Photographs from the Library of Congress has digitized approximately 70% of their more than 2500 Japanese woodblock prints and drawings that date from the 17th-20th centuries.  For visitors interested in accessing some of the collection that has yet to be digitized, click on the link “Access to Unprocessed Materials” located at the top of the homepage. To become familiar with the print traditions in Japanese art, visitors should click on the link in the middle of the page, entitled ”Background and Scope”.  To view examples of some of the types of subjects in the prints, visitors can click on “View Examples” next to the various subjects, such as actors, women, landscapes, scenes from Japanese literature, daily life, and views of Western foreigners. To access descriptions of these prints, visitors can click on the links in the middle of the page, with the aforementioned titles, or scroll down to the bottom of the page to read them. [KMG]
