Yamaguchi Soken (Japanese, 1759–1818) was a prolific painter of ukiyo-e beauties and was particularly talented in rendering scenes from everyday life. Soken accomplished a great degree of realism in his paintings, which he achieved through direct observation of his subjects. Like many other 18th-century Japanese artists, Soken painted scenes of the pleasure-loving urban life, which was known as ukiyo, or the “floating world.”
Contains five each of four different panels from Beauties, late 18th–early 19th century.
