Beauty and Servant in Snow by Choki (active circa 1785 - 1805)

Choki (active circa 1785 - 1805) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauty and Servant in Snow

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 - Attractive winter scene of a beauty under an umbrella standing patiently as her servant bends down to clean snow from her geta sandal. She rests one elbow on his shoulder, wearing a black coat over a dark plum kimono. A charming subject, not often scene in reprint.

Image Size - 14 1/4" x 9 3/8" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
