ARTIST: Chobunsai Eishi

Chobunsai Eishi (1756-1829), also known as Hosoda Eishi, was an ukiyo-e artist of the Edo period. He was born to a samurai family. In his earlier works influences from Torii Kiyonaga's bijinga can be seen. Unlike Kitagawa Utamaro, who was active at the same time, Eishi's female appears more slender and idealized image of women in the yuri (gay quarters). He is known as a master full-length bijinga.

About the Print

Itsutomi was a geisha from the Yoshiwara (pleasure district in present Tokyo). The slender Itsutomi is depicted with shamisen, three-stringed Japanese musical instrument.

Texture

The beautiful textured pattern of the Sumidagawa® brand furoshiki adds elegance to the print.
