Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Wakaume of the Tamaya in Edo-machi itchome
Series; Eight Famous Views of Women
Selected Famous Works - Mainichi Shimbun Publisher

Mainichi Shimbun Publisher - From a fine collection of mid-20th century Utamaro reprints published by Mainichi Shimbun. This small Tokyo publisher carved blocks and reprinted many of the great masterwork designs of the Edo era. Their work was exquisite with an emphasis on quality, not quantity. Note the exceptional detail, carefully shaded printing, fine mica backgrounds, embossing, and other deluxe techniques. Mainichi prints are perfect for the collector or for the highest quality reprint for display.

Wakaume of the Tamaya in Edo-machi itchome - Lovely image of the courtesan Wakaume of the Tamaya in Edo-machi itchome, shown with one of her kamuro or child apprentices peering around her back. She pulls up the collar of her rosy pink outer kimono patterned with cherry blossoms, which has slipped from her shoulders. A beautiful portrait in a soft color palette, with a subtle distressed mica background.

Image Size - 15 5/8" x 10 1/4" + margins as shown
