Rich Black Hair Flowing Through Her Comb

Yu Miyazaki is a Japanese-style painter who has fascinated many people with her "bijin-ga" ("portraits of beautiful women") with delicate lines and soft colors. She received the grand prize at the 9th Adachi Contemporary Ukiyo-e Award, and her first woodcut print "Full Bloom - Hanazakari" that she created with contemporary carvers and printers received high acclaim. Five years later, she worked with modern artisans once again to create her second woodcut print, "Rich Black Hair Flowing Through Her Comb." A tribute to Hashiguchi Goyo, who was called the "Utamaro of the Taisho era,'' this work embodies the elegance of bijin-ga that has been passed down through history.

Making Process & Adachi's Artisans

The production of ukiyo-e, which developed as a commercial printing method, focused on efficiency and profitability. And so, all processes are streamlined and sophisticated. We will introduce the basics of ukiyo-e techniques through the production process of Katsushika Hokusai's masterpiece "The Great Wave off Kanagawa."
