Onoe Kikugoro III as the Nurse Masaoka by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Onoe Kikugoro III as the Nurse Masaoka

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.

Nishiki-e - In 1919, the publisher Fuzoku emaki zuga kankokai produced a series of woodblock reprints of designs by famous ukiyo-e artists which were released in folios. Each volume featured several prints, along with advertisements for products and upcoming kabuki plays in the back. The series was called "Nishiki-e," which literally means "brocade picture," a term referring to multicolored Japanese woodblock prints (see examples of covers below, not included). Includes some subjects rarely seen in reprint. These Taisho era reprints are beautifully printed, with crisp line work and attractive coloring. A great opportunity to purchase a classic ukiyo-e reprint from an interesting format.
