Beauty Adjusting a Hairpin by Hirezaki Eiho (1881 - 1970)

Hirezaki Eiho (1881 - 1970) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauty Adjusting a Hairpin

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 reprint of Meiji era portrait of a young beauty wearing a plum kimono bordered with colorful fans. Her robe is loosely wrapped about her, and she lifts the hem while adjusting one of her hairpins. A charming beauty print with attractive color.

Artist - Hirezaki Eiho (1881 - 1970)
Image Size - 14 7/8" x 10"
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
