喜多川歌麿「歌撰恋之部 物思恋」アダチ版復刻浮世絵

Pensive Love -Selected Poems on the Theme of Love-

The expression of the woman in this picture, with her cheek resting on her hand and eyes half closed, is full of amatory charm. She is evidently suffering the anguish of unappeased passion. Note the delicate depiction of the hand held tenderly against her cheek and the enticing expression. The simple coloring -grey and light purple clothing , and a little red on her lips and cheeks-fits perfectly against the background in pink mica.

Utamaro stayed with the great publisher Tsutaya Juzaburo and made illustrations for kibyoshi and sharebon books. Influenced by Kitao Shigemasa and Torii Kiyonaga, he began to draw full-length portraits in the Tenmei era (1781-89). Later on, during 1790-91, Utamaro established his own style depicting three-quarter portraits of the beauties. His work became very popular because of his vivid new way of reproducing beauties, and his reputation as a master artist was established.
