    About

    A print of the artwork 'Display room of the Tamaya brothel', which dates to the early 1780s and is attributed to the artist Utagawa Toyoharu (1735-1814). The original is a six-panel folding screen which is one of the most important ukiyo-e paintings of the period and is currently the star exhibit of the Museum exhibition 'Women of the pleasure quarters: a Japanese painted screen'. A group of courtesans are seated on the red carpet in the centre of the room, surrounded by their teenage apprentices (shinzo) arranged in pairs wearing long hanging sleeves. They are in the latticed display room (harimise) of a brothel in Yoshiwara pleasure quarter, where they would sit on display to prospective clients. Here it appears to be the quiet middle period of the day and the courtesans are amusing themselves smoking, playing the shamisen (a stringed instrument) and dressing a doll. One of the teenage apprentices has even dozed off.
