In ukiyo-e prints, Utamaro‘s work is said to have been at its finest in 1793-1796 and then to have declined rapidly. His paramount accomplishment in shunga dates from 1799 and he carried on to produce fine work as late as 1805.

The following Utamaro prints for sale (available in our gallery) are from this period:
