Beauties Washing Hair by Harunobu (1724 - 1770)

Harunobu (1724 - 1770) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauties Washing Hair

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 Harunobu design of two young beauties in a geisha house washing their hair in a large wooden tub. One combs her long hair as the other bends over the tub, swirling her hair through the water. Purple irises bloom along the water's edge outside. A beautiful subject with fine line work and attractive color, and silver mica on the surface of the hand mirror on a stand at left.

Artist - Harunobu (1724 - 1770)
Image Size - 11" x 8" + margins as shown
