Decadent Beauties

Decadent Beauties View Works

Slender beneath intricate layers of kimono, hair heavy with gold pins, courtesans were the stars of the floating world. Ronin Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of these elegant beauties from the 19th century. As ukiyo-e prints achieved an unprecedented popularity in the 1800s, their color intensified and these works achieved an air of extravagance. Rendered in such lustrous colors and enticing compositions, this collection of bijin, or beautiful women, represents the height of opulence. Explore this most decadent beauty through the prints of Eizan, Eisen, Kuniyoshi and Kunisada(Toyokuni III),
