Kitagawa Utamaro: c. 1753-1806

Printmaker and painter Kitagawa Utamaro is one of the most reknowned Ukiyo-e artists of Edo period Japan. In the 1790's he pioneered, and became famous for, the classical style in bijin-ga portraits of women. Utamaro's portraits were half length visions of beauty, clothed in richly textured and softly colored fabrics with a particular focus on his subjects faces which are elongated with straight noses and just hits of eyes and mouths. Utamaro's woodblock prints were brought to Europe in the 19th century where they influenced the Impressionist artists. Reference to the "Japanese influence" among these artists often refers to the work of Utamaro. This is readily seen in prints by Mary Cassat who saif of Utamaro's work, " you who want to make color prints, you couldn't imagine anything more beautiful."

"I do not like to imitate others and I have never followed another painter's example."-Kitagawa Utamaro
