I love these Japanese woodblock prints of women. The economy of the line and the elegance of the style. They are the same ones that inspired so many artists who came before me (Mary Cassatt, for instance). Tsukioka Yoshitoshi's 32 Aspects of Women Series and Hashiguchi Goyo's 8 prints of women- the only ones he did in his lifetime.
