Keisai Eisen

Keisai Eisen (1790–1848) was a prominent Japanese ukiyo-e artist, best known for his portrayals of beautiful women, or "bijin-ga." Operating during the Edo period, Eisen's distinctive style captured the elegance and poise of courtesans and kabuki actors, often set against the backdrop of urban life and pleasure quarters. While his figures exuded grace, Eisen's personal life was marked by financial struggles and a colorful involvement in the world he depicted. His detailed, vibrant prints remain a significant representation of the floating world culture of his time.
