Without a doubt, Utamaro (Japanese, c. 1750-1806) is one of the most famous of all Japanese artists. His classic head and shoulders portraits of courtesans, geishas and teahouse waitresses are among the most sought after of all prints. In fact, many serious collectors consider Utamaro’s beauties to be the very soul of Ukiyo-e, the art of the Floating World. This is a classic Utamaro bijin-ga, or beauty portrait, of a young woman reading a letter she has just received. It would be lovely displayed on your home or office wall. Utamaro’s masterworks are in the collections of many of the world’s great museums. Among them are the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the British Museum, London; the Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg, Russia; and the Tokyo National Museum, Tokyo.
