Kitagawa Utamaro (1750-1806) Japanese Woodblock Print 'Tipsy' from the Series; A Parent's Moralizing Spectacles
A comical Utamaro portrait from the series, which depicts a young beauty having imbibed a bit too much sake, feeling sick after a night of partying. Beautiful soft colors, with deep saturation of color, and excellent details, a nice pleasing print by Utamaro. It is unframed, measuring 12" high by 8.75" across. This print bears all the ciphers, including Utamaro's, the original and later publishers', and the story line about her 'predicament'. There is a set of 'spectacles', which adds nicely to the theme of the print. This series was originally published in the late 1790s, and this print is from c1950. It is in excellent condition.
