drroykim Happy Mother's Day! I went to the Asian Art Museum today, and one of the things I love about art is how common all humans are. Here is a woodblock print from about 1800, "Mother Peeping at Her Baby", by Kitagawa Utamaro. If you look at this print, you can see the baby crawling away from the helper, and looking at Mom. Mom is sticking out her tongue at her baby, and you can see this in her reflection in the mirror. I can envision that her baby is smiling and happy to see Mom sticking out her tongue! #edo #woodblock #art #mothersday #tongue #japaneseart #floatingworld #kitagawautamaro @asianartmuseum 2w

1610martin I adore my new book with Japanese woodcuts. It's as big as a side table and don't fits into any book shelf. But I love it #Books #Woodcut #Japan #Art #Germany #Reading #KitagawaUtamaro #Snake #Lizzard 2mon

i_zabeth Sketches (Mixed Media) for the study of the costume of a geisha, based on some of the works of Kitagawa Utamaro, Japanese painter and printmaker. Most highly regarded for his masterly compositions of women known as bijinga . I've always felt a deep fascination with his artwork. .................................................................................. #geisha #kitagawautamaro #mixmedia #tecnicamixta #bijinga #sketch #boceto #prints #Japaneseprints #tatuaje #art #arte #ink #artwork #dibujo #illustration #draw #paint #paintings #artist #watercolour #sketchaday #markers #acuarela #tattoo #ink #inked #tatts #watercoloro #i_zabeth 2mon

lyon.collection Insanely impressive #carving skills and attention to detail in this #HashiguchiGoyō #print referencing #KitagawaUtamaro circa #1918, 10.5 x 15.25 in. Another example of this piece can be found in the #collection of
#ArtInstituteofChicago.
In homage to #Utamaro, #Goyō #carved new #blocks for the series #FujoNinsoJuppin. He did a magnificent job, but alas the sheer cost of his #luxurious #production proved too much for the #publisher and the project was abandoned after only a few impressions were taken.
