Courtesan Konosumi by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Courtesan Konosumi
Series; Comparison of Beauties of the Southern Quarter

Courtesan Konosumi - Lovely okubi-e or large head portrait of the courtesan Konosumi holding a round fan decorated with a landscape of Shinagawa showing boats on the sea and a poem above. Her hair is pulled back into a sleek bun, ornamented with a large comb and many decorative hairpins. Wonderful soft color and fine detail. An outstanding design that would make a lovely framed display. The series title refers to the pleasure quarter at Shinagawa, known as the "Southern Quarter" because it was south of Edo Castle. A beautiful design with fine line work and attractive color. Seldom seen in reprint.

Image Size - 14 5/8" x 9 3/4"
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Slight creasing at edges, slight soiling. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
