歌川豊国「生け花を生ける娘」アダチ版復刻浮世絵

Flower Arrangement

Having set a chrysanthemum branch beautifully in a vase, a woman is taking a puff on a pipe. The girl beside her, who is going to arrange similar branches in another vase under her instructions, appears to be her younger sister ot daughter. The women have their hair dressed in a style termed toro-bin which was fashionable between the late 1770s and early 1800s.

The artist, Utagawa Toyokuni, was a pupil of Utagawa Toyoharu (1735-1814), paralleled in fame with his fellow student Toyohiro (1765or1774-1828). He was always alert to liking of the public, and was a man of ready adaptability. He often imitated, with almost excessive persistence, the styles of such senior artists as Kitao Shigemasa (1739-1820) and Torii Kiyonaga (1752-1815), and sought inspiration about color schemes from Kitagawa Utamaro (1754-1806). It might be said that his pliable attitude in art has caused his work to be under-estimated.
