Kisegawa of the Matsubaya by Shuncho (active circa 1780 - 1795)

Shuncho (active circa 1780 - 1795) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Kisegawa of the Matsubaya

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 - Beautiful okubi-e or "large head" portrait of the courtesan Kisegawa of the Matsubaya. She smiles happily as she looks ahead, her hair elegantly arranged with three combs and many hairpins. She wears a black outer robe over a green kimono patterned with pink and white cherry blossoms, the narrow white trim detailed with geometric embossing.

Artist - Shuncho (active circa 1780 - 1795)
Image Size - 15 3/8" x 10 1/8"
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
