Artist's profile

Hokusai  (1760-1849) born in Edo, now Tokyo is best known as author of the Japanese woodblock print, landscape series"Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji". Hokusai produced his very first print at the age of 19. At the beginning of his carrier, concentrated on prints of actors and beautiful women but none of them were very notable. The character of Hokusai can be best described as restless: he changed his name more than twenty times and his place of residence more than ninety times. This restlessness is also reflected in the variety of his work. Hokusai finally achieved popular success in the 1830s with his publication of landscape series "Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji", which was so popular that he later published 10 additional prints making a total set of 46. 

 

Utamaro (1753-1806), born in local province and went to Edo(Tokyo) around 1775. It is very little known about the life of Utamaro, although there is a great deal of conjecture. Considered by many to be the greatest of the Ukiyo-e artists, Utamaro's Okubi-e ("large head" close-up) portraits of beautiful women marked an epoch in the evolution of "bijin-ga"  (pictures of beautiful women). Rather than depicting a feminine atmosphere typified by clothing or surroundings, however, Utamaro tried to reproduce the beauty emphasis of the whiteness, softness and smoothness of female skin.

 

Sharaku  is perhaps an unusual example among the world's great artists: He left a large number of masterpieces (mainly, portraits of Kabuki-actors) but the dates of his birth and death and details of his carrier are buried in obscurity. Unconfirmed reports state that he started out as a Noh actor employed by the lord of Awa province, and was active as a Ukiyo-e artist for only two years - 1794 and 1795.
