Synopsis

Suzuki Harunobu was a celebrated 18th century Japanese ukiyo-e artist who produced thousands of exquisite woodblock prints illustrating aspects of life and society in old Edo - today's Tokyo.

His subjects extended from Kabuki actors and courtesans to landscapes, explicit eroticism and street scenes. Yet the subject at which he most excelled was bijin-ga or paintings of beautiful women.

This book examines Harunobu's life and times and artistic achievements, as well as 100 full colour images of his most appealing and winsome bijin or beauties - with their lovers, at their everyday domestic chores, in the Yoshiwara brothel quarter, or just viewing nature.
