■ Artist
UTAMARO ( Kitagawa Utamaro )
Kitagawa Utamaro was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist active in the late 18th to early 19th centuries during the late Edo period. Utamaro was particularly renowned for his Bijinga, or portraits of beautiful women, capturing the elegance and daily life of women. His works are praised for their distinctive technique and vibrant colors, making him one of the representative artists of the golden age of ukiyo-e in the Edo period.

【Sugatami Shichinin Keshō】
(Seven Women Applying Make-up Using a Mirror)

Titled "Sugatami Shichinin Keshō," the print suggests that it may be part of or intended for a seven-print series. While the print does not explicitly identify the subject, characteristics such as long, slit-like almond-shaped eyes, the bridge of her nose, and a paulownia crest on her kimono suggest that she is Naniwa O-Kita, a tea-house girl. It's noted that Utamaro used to name his subjects in earlier prints, but due to the strict Kansei Reforms of the 1790s, it became illegal to name entertainers in prints.
