A stunning mid 20th century depiction of one of Kiyonaga’s favourite subjects (Bijin-ja or beautiful women).  Kiyonaga produced this diptych work when he was thirty three and at the prime of his career as an ukiyo-e artist.

Kiyonaga saw in these girls his image of an ideal woman, who was as healthy and beautiful as the females in Greek sculpture.
