Museum masterpieces, Young woman blowing a glass pipe

In 2023, the Museum Masterpieces series illustrates 3 major works featuring women in art including one of Kitagawa Utamaro's works: Young Girl Blowing into a Glass Pipe.

Linking three works from different eras, by different artists is a challenge for the printmaking workshop with the desire to celebrate women as artists and muses.
