Takashima Ohisa - A Ukiyo-e Muse
Here's what the British Museum says about Ohisha: "Ohisa was one of the favourite subjects of several Ukiyo-e print artists in the 1790s, especially Kitagawa Utamaro (died 1806). Ohisa was the daughter of the proprietor of the Takashima chain of cake-shops and tea shops in Edo and seems to have made her reputation serving tea at the family shop near Ryōgoku Bridge.".  This print of Ohisa sold for $138K at Christies.
