    Sharaku entered the ukiyo-e printmaking scene in May 1794 abruptly. Sharaku produced some 140 woodblock prints within only ten months and then he disappeared suddenly and mysteriously. Numerous theories were developed and countless books were written trying to give an answer to one of the biggest enigmas in art history.
