I been reading from a borrowed book by Richard Lane "images from the floting world"
In this book the author writes about the prints
of courtesans made by both Utamaro,Eishi,Eisho
He write that Eishi´s work "shows a trend towards increasing elongation of the human figure".
He writes about Eiri that "his girls are sometime
almost excessively fragile and doll-like".
On Eiri he writes that "His figures are characterized by a solid,worldly charm and are rather more humanized"
About Utamaro his writes that "His fame will always rest principally on this new ideal of woman-hood that he helped create elongated figures,reserved yet subtly erotic in demeanor and with majestic carriage"
Can this information be of any help to matter
