Takashima Ohisa by Kiyomasa (1776 - 1817)

Kiyomasa (1776 - 1817) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Takashima Ohisa

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 - Lovely portrait of the young waitress Ohisa from the Takashima Teahouse, a noted beauty of her time. She holds a slender pipe in her hand as she looks over her shoulder, her hair carefully styled with several hairpins and a ribbon. Beautiful detail in the fine line work of her hair. A charming Edo era design.

Artist - Kiyomasa (1776 - 1817)
Image Size - 11 1/4" x 7 3/8"
