The period is characterized by a transformation from feudalism to a modern industrial state, taking western nations as a model.

Generally, the style is characterized by a mixture of the realistic narrative of the Kamakura period and the mature decorative style of the Momoyama and Edo periods. Distinctive styles and specialties in subject matter were developed by different schools throughout the period.
