Japanese

These oil paintings are based on Japanese woodblock prints done by Kitagawa Utamaro (1753-1806) and his contemporaries Eishosai Choki and Tori Kiyomitsu – however, I have modified them quite a lot. “The Samurai Official” has features from Utagawa Toyokani’s print combined with two other sources.

Samurai Official – oil on canvas 20×24 in.
Geisha with Letter – oil on canvas 24×20 in.
