Almost all ukiyo-e artists designed bijin-ga prints at some point. Translated as "beautiful-person-pictures", they captured the essence of the most beautiful women of the day.
Featuring geisha and courtesans from the Edo pleasure-quarters, these artworks are idealized depictions of traditional Japanese beauty. As time went on, the representation of the women evolved from slender, uniform, other-worldly creatures to become fuller and more sensual.
In this collection, we've arranged a series of highlights from the greatest artists that ever produced bijin-ga prints, such as Utamaro, Eisen, Harunobu and Shinsui Ito. Each of these beautiful geisha and courtesans is available as a fine poster print, canvas wrap, or framed, ready-to-hang pieces.
