Sarah van der Pols / Kitagawa Utamaro



Kitagawa Utamaro
Nibijin ude-zumô  (Arm-wrestling between two beauties)
ca. 1793
Japanese print




I admire the Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints from Utamaro (1753-1806). The fineness of his lines really stands out, and I also feel my theme of the Interpersonal Constructs reflected in his work. I made two large drawings about it.
