This paper discusses a method of using a perspective drawing to reconstruct three dimensions and then converting this to an ukiyo-e composition by moving three-dimensional objects without changing their three-dimensional aspects. To develop the method, the authors analyzed the structure of ukiyo-e to quantitatively identify non-perspective features of an architectural ukiyo-e scene from 1800 and later. To verify the method, they developed a program to convert photographs and perspective drawings to ukiyo-e compositions.
