2 square BIJIN BLOSSOMS print by Bob Kessel

BIJINGA (美人画) is a generic term for pictures of beautiful women in Japanese art, especially in woodblock printing of the ukiyo-e genre, which predate photography. The term can also be used for modern media, provided they conform to a somewhat classic representation of a woman, usually depicted wearing a kimono.

Nearly all ukiyo-e artists, including Hokusai and Hiroshige, produced BIJINGA, it being one of the central themes of the genre. However, a few, including Utamaro, Suzuki Harunobu, Toyohara Chikanobu, and Torii Kiyonaga are widely regarded as the greatest innovators and masters of the form.

Bob Kessel has created a new art series titled, “BIJINGA” based on the Ukiyo-e  genre wood block prints. The pictures are available as limited edition original fine art prints, signed and numbered by the artist. Contact Bob Kessel for prices and availability.
