Utamaro Kitagawa

Utamaro Kitagawa 1750-1806 Abalone Divers series
I like these finely detailed narrative prints of women that I found here:
It looks like Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco has 66 works by Utamaro Kitagawa !
"Kitagawa Utamaro was a Japanese printmaker and painter, and is considered one of the greatest artists of woodblock prints. He is known especially for his masterfully composed studies of women, known as bijinga." link
