Hairstyles in ancient Japan were of great importance. They were an indication of a person's place in society and also their marital status. Japanese ancient hairstyles could command how others should behave around you and the amount of respect you could demand. Nowadays, Japanese hairstyles are seen as a fashion ornament but in ancient Japan, hairstyles were elemental to the culture and everyday life.

Important Kikugawa Eizan Design - Spring Pictures - c.1815.

  > Click on the Picture.

Description:

Antique Japanese color woodblock Kikugawa Eizan (1787-1867). Date: c.1815. Oban yoko-e size: 14 3/4" x 9 3/4" inches.Series: 'Haru no raku' (Spring Pictures). Fine impression, very good color and condition. Very slight vertical centerfold. One small wormhole repair, very tiny paper loss due to the effect of the use of metallic pigments. Very minor wear and soiling, minor marks and flaws. Wonderful use of gold and silver pigments, black lacquer and gauffrage.

This composition is a riot of colour and contrasting textile designs -- it marks a complete break with the past. 
The increasing role of textiles as compositional elements is also apparent in non-shunga prints of this period, that is, from around 1810 to 1820. Depicted is a courtesan and her young patron. Their colourful kimino and patterned bedding decorate the screen forcing the beholder's eyes to focus on the exposed part between them. Both Eizan and his pupil Eisen excelled in the depiction of kimono patterns, and it is not clear if this indicates a shift in the function of shunga. 
It would be interesting to know if textile producers or dyers' shops commisioned sets like these.
