Beauty after a Bath by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauty after a Bath

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.

Comments - Charming portrait of a beauty after a bath, patting the side of her neck dry with a blue towel. She wears a blue and white floral cotton kimono, loosely wrapped around her, a few wisps of loose hair framing her face. At lower left, a red lacquer tray holds a wooden tub with cups floating in it and a shallow blue and white bowl of food. The first time we've seen this attractive design in reprint.
