Young Courtesan Pillar Print by Toyonobu (1711 - 1785)

Toyonobu (1711 - 1785) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Young Courtesan Pillar Print

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 pillar print design of a young courtesan out for a stroll. She wears a kimono patterned with blossoms and tied with a striped obi, lifting the edge of her robe with one hand as she walks. Her hair is sleekly styled, pulled back with a tortoise shell comb and hairpin. A charming design with attractive color.

Artist - Toyonobu (1711 - 1785)
Image Size - 24" x 6 1/2"
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Paper remnants on reverse at side from original folio mounting.
