Drawing inspiration from Kitagawa Utamaro's captivating triptych featuring courtesans and children leisurely strolling along a riverbank in the historic city of Edo (present-day Tokyo), this bookmark captures the essence of its depicted "beauties." Utamaro's artistic contribution belongs to the revered tradition of ukiyo-e, also known as the "art of the Floating World," renowned for its vibrant prints portraying actors, courtesans, and their enthralling world. Since the mid-19th century, collectors have ardently sought after ukiyo-e prints, making them widely cherished. This distinctive art form stands as a pinnacle of Japanese creativity, deeply ingrained in the Western world's consciousness as one of the most beloved and recognizable expressions of Japanese culture.
