Pigment occurrences on 151 paintings of the Ukiyo-e school are presented. The paintings are attributed to five dating groups: late 16th to mid-17th century, mid-17th to mid-18th century, 2nd quarter to end 18th century, 2nd quarter 18th to 1st quarter 19th century, end 18th to late 19th century. Pigment identification was by optical microscopy, microchemistry and X-ray diffraction; the morphological and optical characteristics of, and the chemical tests used to identify, the eighteen pigments found are described. The pattern of occurrences over the five dating groups is summarized.
