Shiratsuyu of the Teahouse Wakanaya by Eisho (1790 - 1799)

Eisho (1790 - 1799) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Shiratsuyu of the Teahouse Wakanaya

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 - Charming Eisho portrait of the beauty Shiratsuyu of the Wakanaya Teahouse holding a small glass bowl with a goldfish in it. She smiles happily as she looks ahead, dressed in layers of patterned kimono. Her hair is pulled back into a large bun, adorned with many hairpins, a comb, and a red ribbon. The background features a repeated motif of rabbits. Lovely soft color and fine line work in the hairstyle. A beautiful design
