Beauties with Hand Mirrors by Shigemasa (1739 - 1820)

Shigemasa (1739 - 1820) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauties with Hand Mirrors
Series; Eight Views of the Elegant Women of Shinagawa

Adachi Publisher - This beautiful reprint is from the famous Tokyo publisher Adachi, one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century. Adachi woodblocks were printed to the highest standards of quality with excellent color and fine detail. The Adachi woodblock printers were known to be the best in the business. Founded in 1925, Adachi also chose interesting and varied subjects for their prints and was the only publisher of many famous old ukiyo-e images. This print is sealed with the Adachi seal in ink.

Beauties with Hand Mirrors - Lovely image of two beauties in private quarters, each looking into a hand mirror. The beauty at right uses a brush to apply lipstick, a small bowl of pigment on the floor nearby. Her companion holds a small round mirror in her outstretched hand, the handled tied with tasseled cord. Both women are elegantly dressed in several layers of colorful patterned kimono. A stand at right holds an arrangement of blossoming peonies in a blue ceramic pot. An attractive design, rarely seen in reprint.
