Beauty Applying Makeup by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauty Applying Makeup

Takamizawa Reprints - Handsome reprint by the venerable Takamizawa publisher. Takamizawa was known as one of the finest reprint publishers of the 20th century, and produced some of the highest quality ukiyo-e woodblock reprints of all time. A great opportunity to acquire a fine reprint of a classic ukiyo-e design.

Comments - Lovely Utamaro image of a young beauty applying makeup to the back of her neck, her face seen only in reflection in the hand mirror, the mirror surface treated with shimmering mica. She delicately pats the side of her neck, leaving a white hand print, as her tie-dyed kimono slips from her shoulder. A beautiful and classic Edo era design with fine detail in the delicate hair line.

Artist - Utamaro (1750 - 1806)
Image Size - 15 1/8" x 10 1/8" + margins as shown
Condition - Excellent overall with no issues to report.
