A set of "Six Famous Beauties"

A set of "Six Famous Beauties"

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.

高名美人とは寛政時代の江戸で有名な美女のことで、本シリーズは歌麿の全盛期の作品であり、代表作の1つに数えられます。当時江戸で名高い美人であった、難波屋おきた・辰巳路考・高島屋おひさ・扇屋花扇・日之出屋後家・富本豊雛の6名を描いています。歌麿は本シリーズにおいて、実際の女性たちの風貌に似せるよりも、歌麿が理想とする女性美を追求したと考えられています。歌麿は、この一枚絵の画面の中で彼の理想とする女性美を生き生きと表現しています。
