    About

    A fine art print of 'Picture of Hideyoshi and his five wives viewing the cherry blossom at Higashiyama', c. 1803-4, by Kitagawa Utamaro, which is on display in the Shunga exhibition. Utamaro created a number of prints showing scenes from the life of the military leader Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1536-98), stemming from the enormous popularity of the illustrated biography 'Ehon Taikoki'. This artwork is based on the illustration 'Flower- viewing at Daigo' from the book. It shows a historical event that actually took place in 1598 when Hideyoshi enjoyed a cherry-viewing party in Kyoto in the company of various wives and concubines (unmarried lovers). In addition to Hideyoshi, a number of other historical figures are also depicted and named. The print was banned in 1804 but the reason why remains a mystery.
