In Reply to: THANKS!!! Re: 1) Quick personal "Hi" and: 2) Hiroshige which are these two? posted by Peter Gallagher on September 24, 2002 at 23:19:52:
Hi Peter, Although John is right that women featured in some of his prints throughout his career, it is incorrect to deduce that these were bijin-ga in the sense that the women were portrayed as the primary object of the print. In his earliest days he produced bijin-ga rather in the style of Eisen and Eizan. He stopped when his penchant for landscape became established and never really took these up again.
: Also very useful to know that I can disregard the reference to Hiroshige ceasing to produce bijin-ga at ANY stage.
