The world portrayed by the art of Japanese printing can be captured under one romantic, by origin Buddhist, name - ukiyo-e, or the floating world. It's a world of brief amusement and pleasure - of daily life like it took place between the 17th and 19th century in theatres, on the street and during parties and festivals.

Eisen Ikeda (1790-1848) was born in Edo, present Tokyo. He was the son of a Kano-painter (calligrapher). Eisen Ikeda, also known under the name Keisai Eisen, got his inspiration from the renowned artist hokusai, and especially from Kikugawa Eizan. The latter is considered to be his primary tutor. Of his own choice, Eisen led a licentious life, filled with drink and women. Although it was customary to boast about their rough life style amongst Ukiyo-e artists, apparently Eisen really did live from day to day. Eisen made beautiful landscapes and erotic prints, but his best-known works are his bijinga, portraits of beautiful women. The okubi-e, portraits with large heads became his trademark. They are considered the highlights of the Bunsei period (1818-1830). The beauties, mostly courtesans, were realistically portrayed mostly with a surly expression. For example, they are more voluptuous and powerful than the well-known slim women of Kitagawa Utamaro, but have a unprecedented sensual appearance. The kimonos, in which the women are wrapped up, are decorated in a fantastic and lavish manner. This goes especially for the obi, the wide waistbands.
