Also murasaki-e G; beni nuki g. Woodblock prints which completely omit bright vermilion *beni g, and use quieter color- combinations, purple with some green and yellow. The trend away from bright colors was thought to have been dictated by government prohibitions against them in 1841, but prints in the benigirai style dating to the late 19c have been discovered, discrediting this theory. It is now thought that the colors were used intentionally to create elegant prints of refined taste. Many such prints were produced in the late 18c by artists such as Kubo Shunman Er (1757-1820), Katsukawa Shunchou t (1726-92), Choubunsai Eishi ։hV (1756-1820), and Kitagawa Utamaro 쑽̖ (1754-1806). Shunman produced particularly elegant prints in the benigirai manner and even painted benigirai *nikuhitsuga M.
