Doll's Day by Eisho (active circa 1790 - 1799)

Eisho (active circa 1790 - 1799) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Doll's Day
Series; Five Fashionable Festivals

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.

Doll's Day - Attractive portrait of a seated beauty smiling over her shoulder as she holds a slender hairpin. She wears a black kimono tied with a red brocade obi, a small basket on the floor nearby with a flowering cherry branch atop a pile of seashells. A charming beauty portrait.
