Traditional Japanese Illustration

Artist: Utamaro Kitagawa
Date:1753-1806

Known for producing some of the world’s best-known ukiyo-e prints, the man himself is a mystery figure and very little is recorded about his life. We do know that he was arrested and then held under house arrest for fifty days in 1804 for making illegal prints depicting a 16th-century military ruler - artists were not allowed to portray famous political figures yet he signed his provocative paintings.  He is considered as “a master of femininity” and an “expert on women.” He became famous in the early 1790s for his portraits of beautiful women with elongated, exaggerated features. He also produced nature studies, specialising in illustrated books of insects. He is known for Japanese erotica in the shunga style. He is thought to have created thousands of designs and artworks and has served as an inspiration for even more. He was one of the few woodblock prints and paintings artists to achieve fame throughout Japan in his lifetime.

Quality

Our papers are loved for their vibrant tonal range and the handmade feel of their beautiful texture. They are 100% cotton based which gives an aesthetic expected with traditional fine art techniques.

Each piece is printed to order in house in our own print studio and delivered in sustainable packaging.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
