Keisai Eisen (1790 ¿ 1848) was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist who specialised in bijinga (woodcuts of beautiful women). His best works, including his ?kubi-e ( large head pictures ), are considered to be masterpieces of the decadent Bunsei Era (1818¿1830). He was also known as Ikeda Eisen, and wrote under the name of Ippitsuan. He produced a number of surimono (prints that were privately issued), erotic prints, and landscapes, including The Sixty-nine Stations of the Kiso Kaid?, which he started and which was completed by Hiroshige. He produced many portraits and full-length studies depicting the fashions of the time.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
