Kushi Woman With Comb - Kitagawa Utamaro - Japanese Edo period Ukiyo-e Woodblock Print Art Painting - Posters
Kushi is a title given to a print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Kitagawa Utamaro. It depicts a woman looking through a clear glass comb.
Ukiyo-e art flourished in Japan during the Edo period from the 17th to 19th centuries, and took as its primary subjects courtesans, kabuki actors, and others associated with the "floating world" lifestyle of the pleasure districts. Alongside paintings, mass-produced woodblock prints were a major form of the genre. In the mid-18th century full-colour nishiki-e prints became common, printed using a large number of woodblocks, one for each colour. A prominent genre was bijin-ga, which depicted most often courtesans and geisha at leisure, and promoted the entertainments of the pleasure districts.
