Ukiyo-e served as ambassadors bringing Japanese culture to the world, and also Ukiyo-e artists were expected to anticipate trends and always stayed a step ahead of new fashion and style .We could know who is the artist of a certain print from signatures or seals in Ukiyo-e painting. A system that automatically recognizes signatures and seals can help enthusiasts and professionals better understand the background information of these collections more efficiently. In this research,we focus on automatic identifying of signatures and seals in Ukiyo-e painting,and we use open data to provide scholars a new perspective to Ukiyo-e collections.
