2/2 From Utamaro to modern beauty

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HEF6Ovj40U&list=PLM4S2hGZDSE6vP-2KyxkDYItMdYsL-Ddg&index=1
First broadcast : Nov. 2014.
In the 18th century, ukiyo-e painter Kitagawa Utamaro became very popular with a genre he created called bijinga, or paintings of beautiful geisha and women around town.

The bijinga tradition is said to have ended in the early 20th century, but in recent years, artist Yasunari Ikenaga has gained attention as a bijinga painter. Through his paintings, we dive into beauty and desire as defined by modern Japan.
