The Willow Tree at the Exit from the Shimabara Quarter by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Willow Tree at the Exit from the Shimabara Quarter
Series; Famous Places in Kyoto

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.

The Willow Tree at the Exit from the Shimabara Quarter - Terrific view of the Shimabara Quarter in Kyoto at night. In the foreground, raucous revelers and geisha depart from the district. In the background, geisha entertain in teahouses, the crescent moon illuminating the scene from above. Lovely reprint with excellent color and fine detail.
