Pleasure Quarters at Fukagawa

Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Pleasure Quarters at Fukagawa

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 reprint illustrating the pleasure quarters at Fukagawa. Two slender beauties pause outside a doorway to a room where seated men are enjoying refreshments. A samurai peers at them from a hole in the shoji screen. An intriguing image with attractive soft color and fine detail.

Image Size - 11 1/4" x 8 3/8" + margins as shown
Condition - Excellent overall with no issues to report.
