http://www.biographybase.com/biography/Utamaro_Kitagawa.html Kitagawa Utamaro Biography Kitagawa Utamaro (ca. 1753 - 1806) (the name has occasionally been rendered as Outamaro, but that usage is archaic) was a Japanese printmaker and painter, and is considered one of the greatest artists of ukiyo-e. He is known especially for his masterfully composed studies of women, known as bijin-ga, although he also produced nature studies, particularly illustrated books of insects. His work reached Europe in the mid 19th century, where it was very popular, enjoying particular acclaim in France. He influenced the European Impressionists, particularly with his use of partial views, with an emphasis on light and shade.
Here is a partial list of his print series, with dates: Chosen Poems (1791-1792) Ten Types of Women's Physiognomies (1792-1793) Famous Beauties of Edo (1792-1793) Ten Learned Studies of Women (1792-1793) Anthology of Poems: The Love Section (1793-1794) Snow, Moon and Flowers of the Green Houses (1793-1795) Array of Supreme Beauties of the Present Day (1794) Twelve Hours of the Green Houses (1794-1795) Flourishing Beauties of the Present Day (1795-1797) An Array of Passionate Lovers (1797-1798) Ten Forms of Feminine Physiognomy (1802)
