Kitagawa Utamaro Ten Physiognomic Types of Women

The Passionate Type

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.

Despite the title, the atmosphere in this print is decent rather than amorous. This masterpiece shows the artist's fresh and youthful artistic instinct and self-confidence. The design is controlled with light tonal colors against a background of scattered white mica dust. A charateristic portrayal of the naive charm of youthful feminine beauty, this print evidences the full blossoming of Utamaro's art.
