    About

    A fine art print of 'The lovers Osome and Hisamatsu', c. 1798-1800, by Kitagawa Utamaro. The print forms part of the artist's series called 'Models of Love-Talk: Clouds From Over The Moon', which illustrates love stories from puppet and kabuki plays. In each illustration, as in the plays that inspired them, the love is hindered unexpectedly by someone - a third and interfering figure in the plot. Here the lovers Osome and Hismatsu are shown - two youthful characters from a well-known kabuki play - and an old man reading a letter. Osome, the daughter of an oil merchant, looks up to Hisamatsu, an employee of the shop, who is communicating by hand gestures. The print echoes the scene in the play where the lovers signal their commitment to a love- suicide pact. The old man in front of them, blissfully unaware of their pact, is possibly Osome's or Hisamatsu's father. The original artwork is on display in the Museum exhibition Shunga: sex and pleasure in Japanese art.
