Young Woman Blowing a Glass Pipe is a Nishiki-e colour woodblock print from  1792–93 by Japanese Ukiyo-e artist Kitagawa Utamaro (1753–1806). The predominant Bijin-ga artist used a variety of techniques and formats and poignantly depicted the inner character of women. The close-up bust portrait of a beauty, known as ökubi-e, was a print form originally invented by Utamaro. This print is one masterpiece from a series presenting views of the various characteristics of women’s physiognomy.
