Artists of the Kaigetsudo school, whose designs dominated the market during the early 18th century, specialized in depicting beautiful women from the "floating world." Unlike the reserved paintings by the so-called "Kambun masters" of the 1660s and 70s, Kaigetsudo artists created a bolder ideal, portraying women of overt glamour and haughty sensuality.
