Obvious Love

Series; Anthology of Poems: The Love Section
Selected Famous Works - Mainichi Shimbun Publisher

Mainichi Shimbun Publisher - From a fine collection of mid-20th century Utamaro reprints published by Mainichi Shimbun. This small Tokyo publisher carved blocks and reprinted many of the great masterwork designs of the Edo era. Their work was exquisite with an emphasis on quality, not quantity. Note the exceptional detail, carefully shaded printing, fine mica backgrounds, embossing, and other deluxe techniques. Mainichi prints are perfect for the collector or for the highest quality reprint for display.

Obvious Love - Beautiful image of a young woman in love, no longer able to hide her feelings, hence the title of the print. She adjusts a hairpin, her tie-dyed cotton kimono loosely wrapped about her, falling open at her chest. Beautifully drawn with delicate fine line work in the face and hair, and a soft color palette enhanced by a shimmering pink mica background. A lovely print.

Artist - Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Image Size - 15" x 9 7/8" + margins as shown
