Woodblock print (reprint) - Kitagawa Utamaro (1753-1806) - Young Woman Blowing a Poppin (Glass Pipe) - From the series “Ten Classes of Women’s Physiognomy” - Late 20th century
Original impression in Metropolitan Museum of Art:
Utamaro's invention of a print form depicting only a close-up bust portrait of a beauty,known as ökubi-e,enabled him to demonstrate the character of his subjects through their facial expressions and gestures.This print shows a young girl blowing on a glass poppin,a novelty of the type coveted by the nouveau rich of the merchant class.Michener pointed out that ukiyo-e today is prized by social historians,since it depicted the new world of the rising middle class and the rich cultural legacy of the Edo period.This print is one masterpiece from a series presenting the various characteristics of women’s physiognomy.The artist even signed his work“Painted by the physiognomist Utamaro.”Sprinkled little cherry flower motifs on the light pink checker-board design of the kimono,as well as the neatly dressed hair evoke the sense of youth,femininity and decency of a daughter from the upper-middle class.

Received my item very carefully packaged, and was delivered only a few days after the auction was closed. Very happy with it!
Excellent. My order from Japan arrived today. It was well protected and no damage during transit.
Verkoper stuurde berichten dat het object eerst zoek was en daarna al eerder verkocht met advies zelf terugbetaling te vorderen. Reageerde niet op mijn reacties. Na 24 dagen nog geen terugbetaling.
very good condition, fast delivery. good rare book. many thanks.
my complaint is there was no authenticity information and the packing was below par.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.De gekochte afbeelding verkeerde in goede staat, was redelijk verpakt: het belangrijkste. Maar dat ik ook nog € 29,60 douanekosten moest bijbetalen, wist ik niet. Zo wordt het wel wat duur. Pas op.
Lot never arrived after payment was made, seller is not responding to communication.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Prodotto perfetto come indicato. Unico problema ho dovuto pagare una mora doganale (16€) perché il prodotto probabilmente non era stato indicato con il suo valore corretto.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Prodotto arrivato rapidamente e pienamente rispondente alle attese.
Purtroppo l’applicazione di oneri doganali lo rende molto più costoso e scoraggia nuovi acquisti da paesi extra UE.
Print arrived in good time as described
The print was packaged very poorly - only in a hard plastic pocket and soft envelope. It was pure luck that the print arrived unbent and not damaged.
