Series; Six Beauties of the Licensed Quarters Compared with Flowers

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.

Lily, The Courtesan Morokoshi of the Echizen Establishment Seated at a Writing Table - Fine Eishi reprint depicting a the beautiful courtesan Morokoshi sitting in thought at a low writing desk, a brush in hand and a dreamy expression on her face. The title cartouche features a lily, the flower to which the beauty is compared. A lovely portrait and a nice choice for display.
