    About

    A fine art print of '[Artist], Block-carver applying sizing', c. 1803, by Kitagawa Utamaro, from the series 'Cultivation of Brocade Prints, a Famous Product of Edo'. This print shows women engaged in producing colour woodblock prints. Ukiyo-e prints were the production of several different craftspeople in addition to the artist and this design depicts the process through the stages of drawing, block-cutting and applying sizing to the printing paper. However the British Museum impression of this rare triptych is missing the right sheet, which shows the artist seated at a table preparing the drawing. Normally the work of producing ukiyo-e prints would be carried out by men. Here Utamaro substitutes beautiful women and converts male craft skills into a world of fantasy.
