After Kitagawa Utamaro (c.1753-1806) Japanese Woodblock - Women and Mosquito Net



A very fine Japanese woodblock depicting a young mother hanging a mosquito net to protect herself and her child. This image is part of a larger composition which comes from the 1801 illustrated book "Picture Book: Flowers of the Four Seasons, Volume 1", by the artist Kitagawa Utamaro (1753-1806). This is possibly a later print by a follower of Utamaro. The style and imagery is very similar, however there are slight differences in the background and addition of the female figure at the lower left. A small label on the reverse reads 'shown to museum'. Unsigned. On laid.


The condition is generally good for a picture of this age. The paper is quite delicate with areas of creasing. Most noticeably at the lower left corner, where the creasing has faded the print. At some point the image has been removed from a backing card/mount or book and there are signs of glue residue on the reverse. Two 1cm tears also visible at the lower edge. With discolouration and foxing.
