Courtesans and Charcoal Brazier by Eizan (1787 - 1867)

Eizan (1787 - 1867) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Courtesans and Charcoal Brazier

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 - A charming portrait by Eizan depicting two elegant courtesans warming themselves by a charcoal brazier. They are dressed in extravagant kimono and one plays a shamisen. A beautiful reprint.

Artist - Eizan (1787 - 1867)
