Beauty Boarding a Pleasure Boat Pillar Print by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauty Boarding a Pleasure Boat Pillar Print

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 - A wonderful Utamaro pillar print of a young beauty in the wintertime about to board a pleasure boat, a young man waiting for her inside. She wears a lovely violet colored kimono bordered with delicate white narcissus blossoms, and tall wooden geta sandals. She holds a partially closed umbrella against the softly falling snow. A charming design with beautiful color.

Artist - Utamaro (1750 - 1806)
Image Size - 7 5/8" x 20"
Condition - With excellent color and detail. Folded near bottom edge by publisher for storage, will be shipped folded, can be flattened to frame. Please see photos for details. Very nice overall.
