Item Details
Description
Woodblock by Kitagawa Utamaro, Coquettish Type, from Ten Physiognomic Types of Women Series

Woodblock: 10" x 15 1/4"

This piece depicts the upper half of the body of a woman in yukata with part of her chest bare on the white-kira undercoat. The three boxes in the top-left part contain, from the right, the main title of the series Fujin Sogaku Juttai (Ten Types in the Physiognomic Study of Women), the title of this picture Uwaki no So (The Fancy-Free Type), and signature and seals (imaged and painted by Utamaro, kiwame-in (censor's seal), and publisher's seal). The publisher's seal shows that this picture was published as part of the project by the celebrated producer Tsutaya Juzaburo (1750 - 97), who made many works of Utamaro and of Sharaku famous. The idea of the project was apparently that Utamaro observed women's faces, and produced ten depictions as explanations of the different types.
