Courtesan Trimming a Lamp by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Courtesan Trimming a Lamp
Series; Customs of the Passing Years

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.

Courtesan Trimming a Lamp - A very early Kunisada design, before 1813. This fantastic print by Kunisada reflects on the design style of Utamaro and Kiyonaga whom he was emulating at that time. A young beauty is seen in her under kimono, extinguishing the light in her room at nighttime. The ash tray near the pillow and two teacups suggest that a man is waiting in bed for her. A lovely, sensuous design, a Kunisada masterwork. Fantastic for display.
