Chobunsai Eishi Selected Geisha of the Gay Quarter

The Geisha Itsuhana

The Ukiyo-e is printed on Echizen kizuki hosho washi (a unique kind of Japanese paper) handmade by Ichibei Iwano, a living national treasure. This makes the vivid colors and the soft, warm textures of woodcut prints come to life.

Most existing works of the artist Eishi are full-length portraits of women. In this print the geisya Itsuhana, with fan in hand, is both neat and beautiful. The black rectangular box on her left contains a shamisen. The almost empty background helps in the creation of this clear and impressive depiction of female grace.
