    'Woman at her morning toilette', Japan, Edo period, c1800. Hanging scroll painting of a married woman engaged in her morning toilette. Her gaze is caught by the beauty of a potted morning glory. Her straight back topped by the rounded marumage hairdo forms a strong triangular composition with the plant, the copper water bowl and porcelain dish with toothbrush and mouthwash to the right. Utamaro was particularly skilled at using the patterns of textiles to indicate the shapes of bodies beneath; the lines of the checked blue outer-kimono suggest convincingly the woman's bended knee. The rougher blue and white checks of the under-kimono and towel give variety to the range of textures. The touches of red, especially around the naked knee, give a sensuality that is rarely missing from the works of Utamaro, a master at catching the moods of his female subjects, often in the more private moments of their lives. JA, JP ADD380 (1965.7-24.04)

    Women sewing, Edo period, Japan, c1795-c1796. A group of respectable married women, surrounded by their children and even a pet cat are working together on a hot summer's day folding and mending obi sashes. On the right, two of them stretch and fold a red silk sash tie-dyed with a white 'starfish' pattern. On the left, the sewing equipment scattered on the floor suggests that this woman is holding up the sash to check a mend she has just made in the fine gauze. A teenage girl examines an insect, perhaps a firefly, in its tiny cage. A little boy teases a cat with its reflection in a mirror, while a baby plays with its mother's fan. Utamaro depicted more types of women, in various activities, than any other Ukiyo-e artist. JA, 1912.4-16.0220
