Kiyonaga (1752 - 1815) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Women at a Bathhouse

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 - Wonderful Kiyonaga genre scene of women enjoying an afternoon at a public bath. At right, a young mother washes her son's face with a cloth as the child protests. A few of the women wear lightweight cotton robes while others have stored their clothing on the wooden shelves at right. A fantastic glimpse of daily life in Edo era Japan.

Image Size - 9" x 13 5/8" + margins as shown
