Hanaogi from the Ogiya Establishment and Others after Chokosai Eisho


Chokosai Eisho is famous for his gentle depiction of beautiful women, especially geisha and courtesans in their daily life. The central panel depicts Hanaogi, a famous yobidashi, a high class courtesan, enjoying hanami (flower viewing) with her kamuro (underage apprentice) and two shinzo (senior apprentice), with other courtesans from Ogiya brothel on surrounding panels.

Tradition of the Floating World – Artist & Printshop, Muha @ BlackBOX is an example of how some traditions can survive through time and gain root from one culture and epoch into another one. Ukiyo-e, pictures of the floating world, are known through prints and reprints from the 17th century till now. In Japan, during Edo period, ukiyo-e prints served as mass produced posters from commoners. Usually artists would paint for print shop and then print shop would make multiple copies of the work. There was usually mutual understanding or contract between artist and the owner of the print shop, leading to the lifetime relationship.
