Reconsidering Collaboration and Ukiyo Art Worlds
This section summarizes the arguments made throughout the book. It begins with a study of an illustrated book that offers information about contemporary writers, illustrators, and publishers, arguing that this kind of material helped in the period construction of an ukiyo art world. In reviewing the main themes of the chapters, the conclusion proposes that these printed materials reproduced that art world’s terms of appraisal, and they relied upon its extended networks of contributors—from the paper and pigment makers to the name-brand artists and publishers to the varied patrons and viewers—as participants in an extended network of collaborators. These floating world represented more than the ideas and contributions of a single individual—they were produced through and for a social and aesthetic network.
