Six Famous Beauties

This series is a masterpiece published in 1795-96. It likened six beauties of the time to the six famous poets, Ariwara no Narihira, Bishop Henjo, Monk Kisen, Otomo no Kuronushi, Fun-ya no Yasuhide, and Ono no Komachi, who were cited in the foreword of the Kokinshu waka anthology.

In this print the massive face of the beauty gives a strong impression, occupying almost a third of the picture. Furthermore, the artist utilizes the texture of fine washi (Japanese paper) for enhancing her fair complexion.
