In terms of ukiyo-e artists Utamaro is ranked alongside Katsushika Hokusai. This internationally acclaimed artist has collections of his works in many major museums around the world, such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
His work is characterized by delicate and beautiful curves. He spent his time painting lots of women, such as prostitutes, courtesans as well as the tea house girls.
On the left side of the painting, there is a kyoka poem which describes Ohisa's character. It reads: “Charms and tea are brimming over, and neither gets cold! Let me not wake, from this lucky dream of the New Year at Takashimaya”.
Utamaro dressed Ohisa in a black costume and impressively represents her beauty. The loose neck line also makes her exude a sultriness.
In the background, to complement the gloss of Ohisa, mica silver pigment is used, creating a piece that sparkles and comes to life.
The woodblock is made of durable cherry tree and the paper is made of the living national treasure, handmade Japanese washi paper.
