The Higher Floor of a Restaurant Pillow Print - One of Utamaro's most famous images from his series "Poem of the Pillow" showing a young couple in an embrace in an upstairs room of a restaurant overlooking Shinobazu Pond. A private moment after enjoying tea, set out behind them. Beautifully drawn and detailed, and exquisitely printed. Very rare in a reprint and the most desirable of Utamaro's pillow prints. An exceptional woodblock.
