Fair Day at the Bishamonten Shrine: Receiving Buddha’s Blessing by Eisen (1790 - 1848)

Eisen (1790 - 1848) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Fair Day at the Bishamonten Shrine: Receiving Buddha’s Blessing

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 image of a young beauty preparing to retire for the night. She lifts the netting with one hand, a fan in the other and a packet of tissues between her lips, her robe slightly askew. The scene at upper looks out over the rooftops at Bishamonten Shrine. A charming subject with fine line work in the netting.

Artist - Eisen (1790 - 1848)
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.
