Utamaro Kitagawa (1753-1806) Mitate Goshoguruma Parody of the imperial court chariot n front of the entrance to a house, two maids bustle around their mistress, while the young woman with her hair untied, wearing a richly flowered kimono, looks pensive. She occupies the left half of the print. One servant shelters her under a large parasol, while the other, kneeling in the right foreground, presents her with a box containing an ink stone, suzuribako. The flowery drape of her kimono stretches across the floor. The bow of her green obi is dotted with white geometric motifs. She looks at her mistress, who seems to be drying the letter she has just written in the breeze. In her left hand, she holds a large fan made of wooden slats held together by a cord of intertwined ties. Part of a chariot wheel can be seen on the right. Signed Utamaro Hitsu. Publisher Senkakudo. Format oban tate-e : 38.3 x 25.2 cm (central plate of a triptych) Nice proof with fresh coloring. A few wormholes. Bibliography: Ukiyo-e Zuten, Shibui, Utamaro, p.18, 1 - 2.
