About Taishō-Era Bijinga Kuchi-e
Kendall Brown identifies the "golden age" of bijin kuchi-e, illustrations of beautiful women appearing in Taisho-era popular magazines, as the period between 1914 and 1921, with the genre continuing into the 1930s.

For more information on this genre and popular magazines of the period see the article Bijin Kuchi-e and Taisho-Era Popular Magazines on this website.
