    About

    A fine art print of 'Love that rarely meets', c. 1793-4, by Kitagawa Utamaro. The print forms part of Utamaro's series called 'Anthology of Poems: The Love Section', where he represented individual women as though consumed by their emotions. With the upper torso and face occupying the central section of the image, this compositional type became known in time as 'large-head pictures' or 'okubi-e'. However, this is not in fact an observed portrait but is designed to represent conceptual typologies - the states of love - as exemplified by a woman of a recognisable social status. She is clearly the prized daughter from a prosperous merchant household - perhaps even of a type called the 'daughter-in-the-box', known for being spoilt and naive. The print is an exceptional display of Utamaro's skill in rendering the female form and in representing nuances of social distinction.
