Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Awabi Divers Triptych

Comments - Beautiful reprint of Utamaro's famous awabi divers triptych, one of the great masterworks of ukiyo-e. The women are resting along the shore after diving for abalone. In the center, a young beauty unselfconsciously combs her wet hair as her little boy suckles at her breast. At right, a lovely young diver wrings the water from her red skirt, her wet hair flowing loose over her shoulders and a knife caught between her teeth. A beauty kneels beside her next to a basket full of abalone, holding a shell out in one hand. A lovely beauty design with graceful line work and soft shading in the gently undulating water. A terrific choice for display.

Artist - Utamaro (1750 - 1806)
Image Size - 11" x 25 1/8" + margins as shown
