Toyoharu (1735 - 1814) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
View of Sanjusangendo Temple

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 - Terrific image of the annual archery contest at Sanjusangendo Temple in Kyoto, held each spring and attracting samurai from around the country. The current contestant shoots from the near end of the temple verandah, the judges seated under a tent to the left. The area is fenced off from pedestrians, some of whom watch the excitement while others stroll the grounds. The building is also known as the "Hall of the Thirty-three Bays." A fine example of Toyoharu's interest in Western perspective, wonderfully detailed.
