Beauty and Sleeping Child by Edo era artist (unsigned)

Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauty and Sleeping Child

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 - Lovely image of a beauty preparing to retire for the night, checking on her child sleeping beside her on the bed. The mother smiles at the child fondly as she pulls up the edge of the quilt, her kimono falling open at the chest. A charming scene, finely detailed.
