Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Comments - Beautiful portrait showing the young waitress Okita serving a cup of tea at the Naniwaya teahouse, located beside the Zuijin Gate at Asakusa Temple. Lovely soft colors, with fine line work in the hairstyle and intricate scrolling pattern of the black obi. The inset at left features a poem by Katsura no Mayuzumi. A classic Utamaro subject with fine detail and a shimmering mica background.
