A young woman smokes her pipe while seated on a bench near a pond. Two other young Japanese beauties linger nearby enjoying the iris blooms at the edge of the pond. KIYONAGA studied under Torii Kiyomitsu and headed the Torii school upon his master’s death. He painted scenes of everyday Japanese life and also produced prints of the Kabuki theatre in the ukiyo-e style. He began to paint in a more naturalistic style in the 1770’s that influenced fellow artist Utamaro. VISIT OUR EBAY STORE FOR MORE WOODBLOCK PRINTS
