Yamauba and Kintaro by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Yamauba and Kintaro

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 scene of the wild woman Yamauba cuddling her son, Kintaro. The child grasps hold of her chin with one hand, a large axe in the other. Her green kimono is patterned with leaves and her long hair flows loosely over her back. A handsome image of these legendary characters.

Artist - Utamaro (1750 - 1806)
Image Size - 9 1/2" x 14 3/8" + margins as shown
Condition - Excellent with no issues to report.
