    About

    Ohisa was one of the favourite subjects of several Ukiyo-e print artists in the 1790s, especially Kitagawa Utamaro (died 1806). Ohisa was the daughter of the proprietor of the Takashima chain of cake-shops and tea shops in Edo and seems to have made her reputation serving tea at the family shop near Ryogoku Bridge. On this print her beauty is celebrated in the poem, top right, by Karabana Tadaaya. The translation reads:Charms and tea are brimming over And neither gets cold! Let me not wake from this lucky dream of the New Year at Takashimaya.
    Utamaro was a Japanese printmaker and painter, who is considered one of the greatest artists of woodblock prints (ukiyo-e).
