Kitao Shigemasa (1739-1820) was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist who worked during the mid to late Edo period (1603-1868). He was a prominent member of the Katsukawa school and was known for his prints depicting beautiful women, or bijin-ga.

Shigemasa's work was highly influential in the development of ukiyo-e during his lifetime, and he played an important role in the transition from the bold, dynamic style of the early Katsukawa school to the more refined and delicate style of the late 18th century. His work was also influential in the development of the "floating world" aesthetic, which celebrated the fleeting pleasures of life and the transience of beauty.

Despite his significant contributions to the world of ukiyo-e, Shigemasa's life and work have not received as much attention as some of his contemporaries, such as Utamaro and Sharaku. However, his work remains highly admired for its beauty and refinement, and he is recognized as one of the important artists of the late 18th century.
