Beauty and Young Attendant by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauty and Young Attendant
Series; The Six Jewel-like Faces of Edo

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.

Beauty and Young Attendant - Lovely portrait of a beauty with a young attendant, the girl standing behind her holding a small parcel, looking over the parcel timidly. The woman rests on one knee as she reaches a hand around her back, watching the girl with a slight smile. She wears a tan kimono trimmed in black, a striped apron wrapped around her waist. A charming scene with wonderfully expressive faces and great interaction between the figures. A great Utamaro design rarely seen in reprint.
