Teahouse by Eisen (1790 - 1848)

Eisen (1790 - 1848) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Series; Contemporary Women

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.

Teahouse - Attractive portrait of a beauty looking down at a package, her mouth slightly agape and a few wisps of her framing her face. Her hair is softly styled, adorned with a few hairpins and a red lacquer comb that is slipping loose at the side. She wears an olive green print kimono with a black collar over a tie-dyed red and blue under robe, a blue and white towel draped over one shoulder. Nicely detailed.
