Utamaro's first works were portraits of Kabuki actors. Later he took the name of Utamaro and devoted himself to images of beautiful women from the pleasure quarters of Edo. He was said to have had numerous love affairs with the ladies from the pleasure quarters. In 1804 he was arrested and shortly detained for violation of censorship laws. This incident apparently broke him mentally and he died two years later.
