Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Folding Fan Seller, Round Fan Seller, Barley Pounder
Comments - Wonderful Utamaro portrait of three beauties at the Yoshiwara Niwaka Festival. Dressed in informal summer clothing, the barley pounder carries a wooden mallet, while the round fan seller carries her wares hanging from two slender bamboo poles over her shoulder. Beautiful soft color with subtle mica in the background, which emulates a distressed appearance. A lovely subject, rarely seen in reprint.
